A climate bill with no targets is like...YOUR ANSWERS

7 Dec 2012

Phil Hogan has promised to publish the Government's draft climate Bill before Christmas. But now he is saying that the Bill will not contain any emissions targets for 2020 or 2050. We need you to make sure he knows that's just pointless. We have an email action that makes the basic argument but we'vre asked you to complete the subject line of the email yourself. 

Here are some of the great entries that have been sent already.

The best entry will win a €25 book token.
