Dear Exeter City PPC,

Since the election date was announced yesterday I have received flyers from both the Labour and Conservative parties -- but neither mention the environment or climate change, despite this being one of the most important issues for whichever party forms the next government.

Most observers recognise that greenhouse gas emissions must peak and begin to drop within the next FIVE years – the maximum length of the next parliament.

We need committed and enthusiastic MPs who will put environmental issues at the TOP of their agendas.

Please show your support by signing the Friends of the Earth Election pledge:

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely
