Whilst most MP’s are aware of issues surrounding climate change and global warming, many do not have time in their schedule to really digest the vast amounts of science involved to make informed choices. “Drawdown” “The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming” is a comprehensive book that examines the leading options open to us to begin to tackle climate change. Their website www.drawdown.org explains the content “Drawdown maps, measures, models, and describes the 100 most substantive solutions to global warming. For each solution, we describe its history, the carbon impact it provides, the relative cost and savings, the path to adoption, and how it works. The goal of the research that informs Drawdown is to determine if we can reverse the buildup of atmospheric carbon within thirty years. All solutions modeled are already in place, well understood, analyzed based on peer-reviewed science, and are expanding around the world.”

This is a global strategy, but our MP’s need to understand these options to help them make informed choices on voting in parliament about these issues, but also in their dealings with other government ministers and contacts in Europe and beyond. Too often our ministers are being persuaded by lobbyists to support bills and measures that are not considering the wider impact on the climate. They often justify these choices in terms of economics for their constituents or the country. But Drawdown is fantastic and breaking down the wider economics showing the initial investment costs but countering with the billions and sometimes trillions saved for the taxpayers. Coupled with the megatons and gigatons of carbon sequestered.

This is the knowledge all our MP’s need to choose appropriately who to support and what industries need subsidies and, perhaps more importantly, which do not.

Insist that the Government buy a copy of Drawdown for every MP, but also that they read it as part of their duties.

I started this petition because…
I am a concerned member of the public who sees too many poor choices being made by our elected representatives. I have recently purchased the book Drawdown and was amazed by much of the content, especially surrounding the hidden subsidies to dirty industries, whilst so many are stripped away from burgeoning clean industries.

Our Government and MP’s are very busy people, but Drawdown can be read in a day or picked over for a week and we will all benefit.
