The climate emergency is the most crucial issue facing us in this country (as I write this there is news of the dreadful floods in the north) and all around the world. We must ensure that those who wish to be our elected representatives know that tackling climate change is an absolute priority for us and we need  the assurance that it is for them too and that they and  their parties are prepared to take really urgent action. The CPRE manifesto for nature is here .  Also the BBC have ‘How Big An Issue Is Climate Change For Voters’ here
