A world-leading Climate Change Bill

A wee thank you that I was delighted to receive -
Dear Rob

On behalf of Christian Aid, I would like to thank you for all the work that you undertook to secure a strong climate change bill. Christian Aid, alongside other members of the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition is delighted at the strong interim target and many other measures in the legislation.

We are heartened that MSPs from all parties listened to the thousands of Scots, including many Christian Aid supporters, who campaigned for a strong climate change bill. As our new pal, Arnold Schwarzenegger said yesterday, "Scotland's ambitious and comprehensive targets encourage other nations to step up to the plate as we look toward an international agreement in Copenhagen, and it sends a message to the world that we must act now and must act swiftly."

Coming ahead of the talks in Copenhagen Scotland has also sent a signal to developing countries what can be achieved in industrialised countries with the right political will.

I hope you enjoy a good break over recess.

With best wishes.


Policy and Parliamentary Officer
