Get your MP to support the target to take the carbon out of our Energy Sector by 2030

On 4th June, MPs will vote on what gets included in the Energy Bill and thanks to heroic campaigning over the last 9 months, the headline debate will be over whether the Bill includes a target to take the carbon out of our Energy Sector by 2030.

Friends of the Earth have a couple of ways you can find out which MPs are supporting the target.

- A list of supportive MPs and parties
- A map with lots of useful information: Supportive MPs' constituencies are shaded green

We still need more MPs to support the clean energy target, so please help us build up the pressure this and next week:

i. E-mail your MP

ii. Follow up if you've already e-mailed:

- If your MP has replied, here are some sample responses to reasons MPs give for not taking action.
- If an MP hasn't replied, you could send another e-mail, or call your MPs' office - Friend's of the Earth's fab map has MPs' constituency phone numbers.

iii. Spread the word on Facebook: Share Stop Climate Chaos' posts.

iv. Get involved in a Twitter push on 3rd and 4th June.
