Climate Change Bill - your views counted

Thank you to everybody who supported the Friends of the Earth's Big Ask campaign for a strong climate law. Parliament voted for the law on the 28th of October 2008, which contains almost all of the measures Friends of the Earth asked for.

The law will allow the UK to play its part in tackling climate change, sets an example that the rest of the world could follow.

There are more details on the Friends of the Earth website.
