The story of the Energy Bill has been a long uphill struggle, but we’re nearly there! It began with months of delays. Then there was the shock at the draft Bill which lacked any substantial action to address climate change. Eventually hundreds of organisations piled on the pressure that led to the second biggest rebellion this Commons has seen. Now the Bill is at its final stage in House of Lords – and we’re still fighting for a victory that is almost visible on the horizon.
Persuading just a few more Peers to attend the House of Lords on Monday (28th of October) and vote for Lord Oxburgh’s amendments to implement a target next year to decarbonise our power sector by 2030 could be all we need to secure this massive victory!
Between now and Monday afternoon it’s really important to keep up the pressure on Peers who might #vote4cleanpower – so pick your tweet below and let them know we’re counting on them.
You could Tweet some Lib Dem peers?
Or you could Tweet some Church of England Peers?
Or you could Tweet some clean technology enthusiast Peers?
