Let's pass the Climate Bill before TDs head for the beach

Thanks to your campaigning the Government has agreed to make changes to the Climate Bill .
But now time is running out to get the Bill through the Dáil before the summer break. Next week's Dáil agenda will be set on Thursday and there's a real risk the Climate Bill will be dropped. Please press for TDs to pass it before they go holidays: On Twitter . On Facebook .
It'll only take a minute and all the key decision makers are tagged in the photo of the fantastic Stop Climate Chaos photo stunt on Sandymount Strand last Saturday.

Dear Dáil party whips, the Government agreed positive amendments to the Climate Bill. Let's pass it before the break pic.twitter.com/U5XmFuEIs1— Friends of the Earth (@foeireland) July 6, 2015
The action on Sandymount Strand was a great success, with fab collaboration across a wide group of organizations and individuals. You can see photos of the event and of the coverage in the Sunday World, Sunday Times and Irish Times here .
Against the odds, we can get a Climate Bill passed in the Dáil in the next few days.
P.S. Don't forget if you're in Dublin tomorrow night, Dublin Friends of the Earth are hosting a screening of Bill McKibben's "Do the Math" , followed by a discussion with Prof John Sweeney and our youth activism officer, Camilla Kane. It's in Filmbase in Temple Bar at 7.00pm, tomorrow, Wednesday 8th July .
Our campaigning work depends on your donations . Thank you.
