London launches climate change campaign

London launches climate change campaign
Young people in London are being invited to air their ideas on how to cut carbon emissions as part of a new climate change campaign.

Their suggestions will join those of numerous celebrities, whose photos are being included in a portrait exhibition at London Zoo alongside their captions.

Mark Ronson, Gary Lineker and Jane Horrocks are among those who have shared their tips on tackling global warming.

Putting a fun spin on the issue, which he hopes will grab children's attention, author Darren Shan said: "If London gets hotter and drier, everyone will sweat more. The city will stink of sweaty armpits and feet and other body bits.

"Unless you like sweat, it's time to start walking whenever you can, use public transport, recycle, don't waste water or energy."

London mayor Boris Johnson said he is confident that the capital's young people will have some "ingenious" ideas about how to save the planet.

Mr Johnson has committed to cutting London's carbon emissions by 60 percent by 2025.
