Building a national network of grassroots groups to challenge MPs to address the climate crisis, or replace them with someone who will.

 New stretch target

With more funding we can take on additional researchers and campaign co-ordinators to help roll the project out in different areas over the next few months. It will also allow us to travel to constituencies for meetings and outreach and get some social media help.

We are living in an age of unprecedented risk. Insurance companies, the military and billionaires are planning for catastrophe, yet our MPs seem either asleep at the wheel or in denial. 

Our Aim? To challenge our MPs – people paid to serve us – to stop denying the science and commit to our legally binding obligations on Net Zero.  If our MPs will not listen and represent our concerns, then we will work to replace them with someone who will.

This campaign aims to focus on the climate actions and positions of each and every MP and hold them to account. We support constituents in starting new MP Watch groups targeting those spreading climate misinformation and denialism and pushing back against the government’s own targets.

Who are we? We are a grassroots network of neighbours and constituents alarmed about the climate and ecological emergency and denial of the science, banding together to share the skills, resources and experience to challenge our MPs. 

It all started with Steve Baker Watch, which aimed to put pressure on the most notorious climate denier in the House of Commons - a trustee of the notorious Global Warming Policy Foundation and founder of the Net Zero Scrutiny Group -  by exposing his obstruction of net zero initiatives.


As an MP, Steve Baker supposedly works for his constituents, and now as a minister, for the whole country. Yet he is endangering our future with his reckless approach to our climate's fragility. 

Steve Baker Watch was such a roaring success that we decided to extend the approach to other high profile and denialist MPs. In just the last few weeks, new watch groups for Jacob Rees-Mogg, Sally-Ann Hart, Graham Stringer and Mark Jenkinson have joined Steve Baker Watch and the other existing groups Craig Mackinlay Watch and Roberts Courts Watch – with more watch groups on the horizon!

With your support we can start Watch groups in more constituencies where  MPs are failing or refusing to act on climate.
