Dear Candidates,

We are writing to you ahead of the General Election to ask you to back the Climate and Nature Bill if you are elected to Parliament.

The Climate and Nature Bill is backed by 51,709 members of the public and 1,656 incredible organisations, politicians, and scientists from across the UK.

As local residents, we're alarmed by the damage that's being inflicted on our community, livelihoods, health, and homes as a result of the climate-nature crisis.

Recently, Storm Henk caused widespread damage across Wiltshire, with residents experiencing devastating impacts from flooding, which impacted travel, damaged homes, and led to a tragic loss of life. As local residents and business owners, we are increasingly vulnerable to the impacts of flood events, as their frequency continues to rise throughout the UK. [Source]

Across the nation, disasters like this are contributing to the rising cost of living. The higher prices we are paying for food, energy, transport, and consumer goods are all linked to our dependence on fossil fuels, the knock on effects of runaway climate change, and the destruction of nature.

But there is a solution. The Climate and Nature Bill is the legislation we need to tackle this growing crisis. The CAN Bill will help us build a healthier, more prosperous, nature-rich UK—as well as boosting new jobs and skills for people in Swindon North. It will make us:

  • Better off - by ensuring our homes are properly insulated, and our energy is cleaner, less expensive and more secure.
  • Healthier - by reducing air pollution, and by encouraging healthier, more sustainable food consumption, while supporting our farmers and food producers.
  • Happier - by protecting our green spaces and the wildlife that depends on them, ensuring everyone has access to nature and increased wellbeing.
  • More resilient - by reducing the threats from extreme weather, such as flooding, erosion, and crop failure.

Will you be the hero we need in Swindon North? All you have to do is say: "Yes, I'm backing the Climate and Nature Bill!"

Yours sincerely,

The voters of Swindon North
