Gordon Brown to arrive in Copenhagen early

Gordon Brown to arrive in Copenhagen early
Gordon Brown has announced that he is flying out to the UN climate change summit two days earlier than he originally planned.

The prime minister will make his way to Copenhagen today (December 15th) in a bid to salvage the crucial talks and achieve a fair and strong climate deal.

Friends of the Earth executive director Andy Atkins welcomed the move.

He said: "The Prime Minister could help kick-start the talks if he committed to UK emissions cuts of 40 per cent by 2020, abandoned carbon offsetting and put much more money on the table to enable poorer nations to tackle global warming.

"The coming week in Copenhagen is crucial - Gordon Brown has a historic opportunity to help secure the long-term safety of the planet by showing bold global leadership."

Mr Brown's early arrival will mean that he attends the summit several days ahead of other world leaders such as US president Barack Obama.

Talks in the Danish capital are set to conclude on Friday (December 18th).
