It would be great if you could consider sending this action on, Or at least taking the action yourselves.

Urge Senators to Support the Climate Protection Bill.

Friends of the Earth are urging senators to progress the Climate Protection Bill when it comes up in the Seanad this month.
Send them an email now asking them to support this important piece of legislation.

The Climate Protection Bill, originally drafted by Ivana Bacik, for Friends of the Earth, was introduced in the Seanad in October 2007 by Senator Bacik. Under pressure from our campaigners the Government did not kill the bill. Indeed they welcomed the principle of legislation and promised to provide more time to debate the idea further. They have yet to keep their word.

Although none of us get to vote for 54 of the 60 senators most of them actually have close ties to Dáil constituencies and harbour ambitions to run for the Dáil. Therefore they pay close attention to the views of people from their area. So we're asking you to email your local senators and ask them to support the progress of the Climate Protection Bill this Month.

Many thanks
