Government pushing for climate change success

Government pushing for climate change success
Climate and energy secretary Ed Miliband has reiterated the UK's commitment to tackling climate change.

With less than one week to go until the crucial political conference in Copenhagen, the minister has announced that the government is dedicated to achieving the most "ambitious, comprehensive agreement" possible.

"Every day, in any way we can, we will be pushing every country to show the necessary ambition for the agreement we need. Copenhagen can and must succeed but it still needs maximum pressure from politicians and public alike," he said.

"Last week, we saw again that the pressure of the December deadline is paying off as the US and China put numbers on the table. We have come a long way but there is still a distance to travel to get the agreement we need, consistent with the demands of the science."

The United Nations-hosted talks are set to take place at the Bella Center in the Danish capital between December 7th and 18th.

World leaders will meet to decide on a framework for mitigating the effects of climate change, which will be put in place from 2012 onwards.
