This of course gives the lie to the attempts by Conservatives to forge a cross-party consensus on climate change. David Cameron should withdraw the whip from Chope and Forth.

I am sorry to hear this. I thought that there was a consensus emerging between all the political parties to act on climate change. If we don't get this one right and soon, nothing else will matter!

As some people may know, Mr. Christopher Chope (Christchurch) (Con) and Mr. Eric Forth (Bromley and Chislehurst) (Con) managed to "talk out" the Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill yesterday.
Apparently this was against the wishes of the Conservative Party. So David Cameron, our local MP and now the bright eyed and bushy tailed leader of the Tories, needs to do some head-knocking immediately to stop a repeat from such climate change deniers (who set themselves up against the historically unprecedented consensus of scientists around the world who are getting into a state of severe anxiety about the rapidity of change in the last few years).
To reinforce the point, the BBC reports today that there has been a sudden acceleration in the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in the last year alone - the danger is that we are already seeing a tipping point being reached in the planet's ability to soak up increased CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions (like methane) being created by human actitivity. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/4803460.stm
So ring Mr Cameron on the number given below, or through whatever numbers you may have for local offices, home or whatever (some people will know this due to his local connections). His email address and other contact details are:
