[biofuelwatch] urgent call for action - biofuels twitter storm - please act!






Dear biofuels / European networks,

This is a short sharp and urgent call for action!

We have developed a simple social media action for people to show MEPs that they care about this important issue, and we need YOUR help to make sure that they hear our call.

It is here: http://takeaction.biofuelsreform.org

As you're aware, this coming Tuesday 24 February, MEPs in the Environment Committee of the European Parliament will vote on the future of EU biofuels policy – and the reforms the European Parliament will make to fix this badly broken policy.

On the table is a vote to:
  • put a cap on food crops in biofuels, which will prevent some of the devastating global impacts,
  • make sure that the climate impact of biofuels is fully accounted for,
  • set sustainability criteria for so-called 'advanced' biofuels

It's a really important moment – the culmination of four years of campaigning. And there is a high risk that a progressive outcome could be jeopardised by hard-liners.

Our social media action will target the main MEPs: we want to send hundreds of tweets to the 100 most relevant MEPs between now and the vote on Tuesday afternoon.

Please can you help?!

We need a real twitter storm – we need to spread the word on this action and get people using it to tweet their MEP.

What you can do:
  • Use this tool to tweet to your MEPs – ask colleagues, contacts and followers to join tweet too!
  • Tweet from your organisation and help promote this action amongst your followers and allies
  • Translate the tweet into your language and send it to me, so MEPs can be tweeted in their mother tongue

This rolls from now until Tuesday at 3pm.

Many thanks!

Robbie

PS. Many thanks to Nico at T&E and his web developers Old-Continent, as well as the Groen-Links for their quick work helping us develop this action.

Biofuels are a wide range of fuels which are in some way derived from biomass.

Your idea?
