Climate Petition

Scotland’s official Catholic Aid Agency is launching an appeal to parishioners to sign a petition to the Prime Minister ahead of the COP26 climate change conference to be held in Glasgow in November, at which Pope Francis is expected to participate.

SCIAF point out that with climate change already having a devastating impact on the world's poorest communities, time is running out.

Parishioners are asked to write to the PM urging him to do three things:

 

Pay to protect the poorest communities - Make sure financial support is given to those impacted by climate change so they can adapt and recover.

Act now to stop runaway climate change - Make sure world leaders commit to keeping rises in global temperatures below the disastrous 1.5°C threshold.

Listen to those on the frontline of the climate crisis - Make sure that people worst affected by the crisis are at the heart of the climate talks.

You can sign the petition at https://www.sciaf.org.uk/timeforaction
