With both Labour and Conservative's considering watering down their climate policies, it's more important than ever for to show them that the public are watching and judging.

The BBC hosting a climate policy debate in the run up to the next general election will not only show support for such policy, but provide a platform to scrutinise and engage in them.

            Will the BBC really go against their funding and do that?

              @munene_mugambi good question! The BBC is funded by license payers, so any household that wants to use BBC services pays around £150 (it's a bit more complicated than that), it's not funded by the government or any other organization. As part of their charter, they do need to remain politically neutral, but they also have a responsibility inform and educate the public and always host debates at General Elections as well as political shows throughout the year. Hosting the debate won't break their charter if they encourage all parties to get involved and listening a public demand for such debate shouldn't have much of an impact on license payers.
