Scotland misses second climate target - SCCS @scccoalition call for action

Responding the news today that the 2011 emission target was missed, Dr Sam Gardner of coalition Stop Climate Chaos Scotland (SCCS) said:

"Today's news of a second missed target is very disappointing. We recognise that this is due in part to complicated changes on how we count our emissions, but the headline of another missed target strongly underlines the need for a much tougher climate action plan, expected out later this month, that will drive down emissions year on year and give confidence that future targets can be met. 
“With increasingly tougher targets in the future, Ministers must up their game if Scotland is to deliver on climate justice and is to reap the rewards of the transition to a low carbon future."

Record your video message to the Scottish Government!
UNISON is a member of SCCS. We need your help in the final push on the climate action plan. Could you record a message to Scottish Government Ministers calling on them to listen to the concerns of the Scottish public on climate change?
You’ll need to do this by Monday 10th June at the latest
