More than 100 MPs sign climate change EDM

More than 100 MPs have so far signed an early day motion calling on the UK government to urge the EU to take a stronger stand in tackling climate change.

With less than a month to go to the crucial UN climate change summit in Copenhagen, the motion says industrialised countries bear the greatest responsibility for global warming.

It calls on EU governments to commit to 40 per cent cuts in carbon emissions by 2020. The present target is 20 per cent, rising to 30 per cent if a global deal is reached at Copenhagen.

Where is EU leadership asks Stop Climate Chaos Coalition?

On the eve of the European Heads of Government meeting, the UK based coalition, Stop Climate Chaos, (SCC) says that unprecedented levels of political will are now needed to rescue the Copenhagen climate change negotiations.

Following last week’s failure of the world’s major economies to set the necessary targets for both greater emissions reductions by rich countries or a funding package for the poorest countries, this could be the last chance the EU has of showing leadership on climate change ahead of the international summit in December, the SCC said.

Reaction to Gordon Brown's MEF speech

On Gordon Brown’s speech at the Major Economies Forum, the Director of Stop Climate Chaos Coalition, Ashok Sinha said:

Gordon Brown was right to state that the natural world is on the edge of catastrophe and it is the leaders of the rich world who have taken us to the precipice. The world faces a future of mass flooding, devastating storms, colossal infrastructure damage, failed rains, failed food crops, resource conflict and millions upon millions of climate refugees.
