The Climate and Ecology Bill (CE Bill) is a proposal for new legislation that addresses the full extent of the climate and nature crises in line with the most up-to-date science.
If made law, the Bill would make sure the UK does its bit to keep global heating down to 1.5°C and would reverse the destruction of nature by 2030.
And importantly, because the climate and nature crisis affects everyone, the Bill also calls for a climate and nature citizens’ assembly to help the government and parliament develop an emergency strategy on the way forward.
Extinction Rebellion are passionate about democracy and we support the Bill because it is led by science, rather than political ideology, and because of the citizens’ assembly at its heart. Because for politics to work for everyday people, it has to include everyday people.
