Campaigners call for urgent climate change action



Campaigners call for urgent climate change action
Politicians in the UK are being warned that whoever wins the next election must take urgent action to reduce carbon emissions.

A group of campaigners have produced a short film claiming that the next parliament will represent Britain's the last chance to do something about global warming, the Telegraph reported.

Presented by Sir Trevor McDonald, the film looks at previous achievements by UK governments, including the creation of the NHS and the abolition of slavery.

It points out that depending on the choices they take now, ministers have the opportunity to make history once again by saving the planet from the disastrous effects of climate change.

The report makes a number of recommendations, such as the creation of a route map for low-carbon electricity, transport and buildings, as well as efforts to ensure a stable price for carbon.

Leading environmentalist Jonathon Porritt is one of the campaigners leading the call to action. He said: "Every single one of these recommendations is a policy that can be implemented immediately."

The call follows the publication of a government report which showed that the UK has cut its emissions by almost a quarter compared to 1990 levels.

"The call follows the publication of a government report which showed that the UK has cut its emissions by almost a quarter compared to 1990 levels"
So where can we get the figures fore the tonnage of fuel - gas and oil - burned by the uk in 1990, and 2010 ? Frankly, I don't believe it untill I see indisputable figures relating to the above - and then I shall be happy to celebrate.
