A CAMPAIGN aimed at raising awareness of climate change has caught the attention of a Weaver Vale MP.

Mike Amesbury has pledged his backing to The Climate Coalition's Show the Love campaign which celebrates things that could be lost without tackling climate change.

A report released last week from the Coalition warned that extreme weather is hitting British fruit and vegetable yields.

The Climate Coalition is made up of more than 130 organisations representing 15 million people, ranging from aid agencies such as CAFOD and Christian Aid to groups such as the Women’s Institute, WWF, RSPB, and the National Trust.

Mike joined Cheshire campaigner Sue Bentley MBE at the event in the Commons.

He said: "It’s really important to take a moment to reflect on what could be under threat in our own lives.

"I’m proud to be wearing my green heart and supporting a net zero future before 2050.

"I want to be part of leaving a legacy for future generations that we can all be proud of."

The UN’s climate science body highlighted in October the need to prevent dangerous climate change.

More than 179 MPs have signed a letter calling for the government to set a target of ensuring the UK no longer contributes to climate change within a generation.

Clara Goldsmith, director of campaigns at The Climate Coalition, said: "Climate change is already changing the things we love in the UK.

"It’s also hitting the most vulnerable people, whether that’s very young or elderly people struggling with heatwaves here at home or those in poor communities overseas affected by a loss of crops or more severe disasters.

"That’s why we need to take action, including calling on the government to set an ambitious target to reduce the emissions which are driving climate change."
