A campaign to encourage public sector organisations, private sector companies, and the public to reduce carbon emissions by 10% by 2010 has been launched by the team behind The Age of Stupid, a film about climate change.
The 10:10 campaign, which has the backing of the BMJ, has been launched to encourage people to show the government that they have got a mandate to reduce carbon emissions.
The aim is to obtain as many signatories as possible by 21 September and to urge the government’s climate change and energy secretary, Ed Miliband, to commit the country to the 10:10 target ahead of the next set of international talks on climate scheduled for December in Copenhagen.
