"The Big Ask"

25 May 2005
Radiohead front man Thom Yorke today calls for thousands of people across the country to back The Big Ask, a new national climate change campaign to make the UK Government legally responsible for reducing the UK's impact on global warming, reports Friends of the Earth Scotland.

It comes as a NOP survey shows that nearly three quarters of the public believes the Government is not doing enough to tackle climate change.

The UK is failing to meet its climate change targets and The Big Ask campaign, launched by Friends of the Earth, challenges the Government to bring in a new climate change law. The law would force the Government to take responsibility for the UK's contribution to global warming by reducing carbon dioxide emissions by three per cent every year. The public can back the campaign by logging onto www.thebigask.com
