Geoff O’Donoghue, CAFOD’s Director of Operations, visited Our Lady, Star of the Sea in Mumbles to speak to supporters and parishioners about CAFOD’s work and new ambition “No One Beyond Reach.”
Ten years ago, MPs came together to pass a ground-breaking law: the Climate Change Act. The law was the first of its kind and showed that the UK was serious about tackling climate change.
However, ten years on, we know that we need to be going much further and faster with our emissions cuts if we are going to limit the word effects of climate change.
We need to set a net zero target before 2050, this means only producing the same amount of greenhouse gases that we take in.
A group of MPs have already come together to ask for this by signing a letter. But if we are going to set a new target, we need more MPs to sign up.
