To David Cameron, Nick Clegg and the Coalition government,
Look after our countryside and our environment. Don't scrap the laws which protect them

- Keep your promise to be the "greenest government ever": make protecting our environment and countryside a priority
Your comments on this campaign
The government is planning to scrap green laws which protect our planet and help prevent climate change. Politicians claim that these important laws that reduce emissions, protect wildlife and the countryside are ‘red tape’ that we're better off without.
We need to act fast to tell them that we want to keep these green laws.
In many cases, public pressure led to the laws being made in the first place. Now, we need to work together to show that there’ll be a huge, people-powered outcry if they scrap these precious laws which protect our environment.
Sign the petition to tell David Cameron and the government that we don't think these laws are 'red tape' and we want them protected.
