Reduce transport emissions, deliver climate justice

Stop Climate Chaos Scotland are asking  people across Scotland to write to their MSP  asking them to lobby finance minister John Swinney for more investment in cycling and pedestrians provision.

They say:

Transport accounts for a quarter of Scotland’s climate change emissions. This needs to reduce urgently and decisively if Scotland is to play its fair part in tackling global climate change.

We all need to move about, whether that’s popping down to the shops, commuting to work, taking children to school or going on holiday: everyone uses transport in one form or another. 

Enabling more people to walk and cycle is a crucial part of reducing our collective carbon footprint.

The Scottish Government has the power to transform the way we move around, but at the moment only a tiny fraction (just over 1%) of the total transport budget in Scotland is allocated to cycling and walking.
