Anyone attending the current UK Tour may notice that Ash have asked Friends of the Earth to tour with them. Like a lot of people, Ash are really concerned about climate change, which is why they approached Friends of the Earth last month to offer their help in getting the word out about their Big Ask campaign which is calling on the UK Government to take urgent action on climate change. The band had the following to say:
Ash are now joining Friends of the Earth in urging the Government to strengthen their planned Climate Change Law this winter. If the campaign is successful, and the Government listen, the UK will be the first country to introduce annual and legally binding CO2 emission reduction targets. The UK will then be leading the way and setting an example to the rest of the world.
