Crucial talks are taking place at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Poznan, Poland until 12 December 2008. Let’s keep up the pressure for a global deal in time to prevent the most dangerous effects of climate change taking hold! Latest from the WWF UK climate team in Poznan Last Saturday’s National Climate March to parliament UK Climate Change Act victory! Thanks to all of you who helped push for a strong and effective Climate Change Act. On the 27th November 2008 history was made – the Climate Change Bill received royal assent and brought into law the world’s first legally binding targets for a nation to cut its greenhouse gas emissions. Let’s celebrate – how we made a difference Next steps: getting a ‘Global Deal’ UK Marine Bill success – a big thank you! We did it! Congratulations to everyone who emailed their MP asking for strong support of the UK Marine Bill. As a result the bill was announced in the Queen’s speech. This is the first step towards pulling our UK coastal life back from the brink. We’re nearly there – let’s keep up the pressure during 2009 … Royal assent for UK Marine & Coastal Access Bill Harbour seals decline “alarming” (BBC News) Bluefin tuna lifeline cut by EU pressure Your response to our plea to help save the bluefin tuna was fantastic. A petition of 16,000 supporters’ names was delivered to the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) meeting in Marakkesh, Morocco. Unfortunately, the event was marred by allegations that the European Commission threatened members from developing countries with trade retaliations if they supported lower catch limits and extended closed seasons. This resulted in catch allowances far higher than recommended by WWF and ICCAT’s own scientific advisors. WWF is calling for the fishery to be shut down until rampant overfishing can be brought under control. More about what was decided at the ICCAT meeting More on the petition handover Government wobbles on Heathrow expansion Hundreds of you contacted your MP to ask them to sign the petition against a third runway at Heathrow. Thanks to public pressure, the government is delaying its decision on expansion. Geoff Hoon MP said, “I know that there are strong views across a range of interests. I will ensure that I give proper consideration to the evidence before me and will therefore take more time before making an announcement to the House, in January 2009.” Has your MP signed? Find out at www.parliament.uk Why WWF’s concerned about Heathrow expansion Wake Up, Freak Out – then Get a Grip We liked this thought-provoking film by Leo Murray, sponsored by the Royal College of Art. It communicates the urgency with which we need to address climate change and how our own behaviour must be part of the solution. Leo Murray says, “It seems we are now dangerously close to the tipping point in the world’s climate system; this is the point of no return, after which truly catastrophic changes become inevitable. “ A Gift to Campaigners Did You See?
