The 38 Degrees group is campaigning for constituents to contact their MP:
If we don’t act to stop the climate crisis now, our world will change beyond recognition.  For far too long politicians have ignored the facts, and failed to put our bees, hills, and fields first. Now time is running out. 
But on Wednesday, an urgent debate is taking place in Parliament. MPs will be asked to vote to declare a ‘climate emergency’ and force Parliament to take action to stop runaway climate change from devastating our planet. 
It could be huge. MPs would have to put their words into action and commit to setting an example to the whole world to stop climate change. But it will only happen if MPs turn up and vote for it.
Climate change isn’t a done-deal. We can stop it.  But we need politicians to sit up and listen. If your MP - Hugo Swire - hears from thousands of us today, the pressure could force them to vote the right way.
Last time climate change was debated in Parliament, hardly any MPs turned up.  There were empty benches and nothing was decided.
But thanks to the huge wave of pressure over the past few weeks - from school children striking, to city-wide protests - MPs are feeling the heat to act. 
Thousands of messages from constituents like us, demanding they vote to declare a climate emergency, could force them to vote, and take the necessary steps to stop climate change - now.
Will you write to your MP and tell them to vote to declare a climate emergency on Wednesday?
