Closed petition Ban outdoor heating and cooling units
Make the use of outdoor heaters and cooling units illegal as they are an unnecessary use of energy and damage the environment. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this ban could come into force after this winter. Announcing a ban now should discourage people from buying new heaters now.
It should help reduce the amount of fossil fuels our country is using, make the UK more likely to meet the requirements of the Paris Agreement (2017), and make the UK a more environmentally-friendly country.
If it is too cold to sit outside, wear a coat or sit inside. France have plans to ban outdoor heaters and cooling units after this winter; we should do the same. Other colder countries, like Sweden, manage without outdoor heaters. They simply wear more layers.

Tell MPs what you think about the Climate Assembly’s recommendations for net-zero emissions
MPs from six select committees of the House of Commons joined together to set up a citizens’ assembly on climate change to look at how the UK should reach its commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The Climate Assembly UK brought together 108 people from across the UK. Together they were representative of the wider UK population in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, educational level, where in the UK they live, whether they live in an urban or rural area, and how concerned they are about climate change.
They worked together to create recommendations to Government.
How can you help?
MPs want to know what you and your communities think about the recommendations made by the assembly.
Discuss these questions with your school, workplace, family or community group and submit a joint response. It’s a great opportunity to hear others’ views on these issues and to share the outcomes of your discussions with MPs.
Share your answers via this online survey: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/A464RU/
Please return your responses by Friday 20th November 2020.

Information provided in the survey will be used to inform the select committees’ ongoing work on net zero greenhouse gas emissions.
