Jo Makes Earth Hour Pledge for Climate Change

Last week I was pleased to sign up to support WWF’s tenth Earth Hour by making a special pledge to help protect the planet.  The world is changing – fast – and it’s never been more important to show support for action on climate change. I was one of many MP’s who joined WWF at the House of Commons  this week to show they care about the future of our planet, ahead of the global lights out event, taking place on Saturday 25 March at 8:30pm.   

MPs from all political parties are celebrating Earth Hour, sending a united message that this is a pivotal time for our planet and more needs to be done to tackle climate change and build a sustainable future.

I am delighted to support WWF’s Earth Hour again this year to demonstrate how important it is that we take climate change seriously. I am proud that this Parliament has set ambitious targets to reduce our carbon emissions over the coming decades, and I will continue to urge the UK government to outline clear plans in order to live up to these ambitions.

Each year, millions of people around the world come together to call for action to protect our planet. Last year a record 178 countries took part and iconic landmarks across the UK switched out their lights, from Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, to Brighton Pier, Edinburgh Castle and Caerphilly Castle. This year is set to be the biggest yet as it’s the 10 year anniversary of Earth Hour. With 2016 breaking temperature records for the third consecutive year, it’s never been more important to tackle climate change.
