People from every walk of life, from nuns to snowboarders, are expected to lobby all 650 MPs to raise concerns over the threat posed by climate change

Thousands of people from snowboarders and surfers to bee keepers and nuns are set to converge on parliament on Wednesday to urge their MPs to back strong action on climate change.

The mass lobby is today calling on parliament to support a global climate change deal which will end carbon pollution from fossil fuels by mid century and invest in warm homes, clean energy and sustainable transport.
