Rejected petition I would like the reinstatement of the climate change department.
Theresa May has closed the climate change department. She has moved the responsibility to a new department for business. Relegating the issue of climate change to a subcategory within a department is going to lower the priority of the issue. Please reinstate climate change as a department.
