UK Top 100s for global climate movement



UK Top 100s for global climate movement
Media personalities and business leaders in the UK are being asked to show support for a worldwide environmental campaign.

The 'tck tck tck' movement is a global alliance of organisations demanding a fair and wide-reaching climate change agreement.

Cabinet ministers Lord Mandelson, Ed Miliband and Ben Bradshaw have written to business and media high-flyers as well as other MPs to get their backing for the initiative.

Ed Miliband, climate and energy secretary, said: "It's in everyone's interests to back a deal to help make Britain a centre for green and low carbon jobs and make our communities and homes greener."

Business secretary Lord Mandelson added: "Britain's world-class businesses are global leaders in low carbon manufacturing. The tck tck tck campaign is an excellent catalyst for galvanising support from the sector and leading the way towards a low carbon economy."

Organisations such as Marks & Spencer, Lloyds Banking Group and the Confederation of British Industry have all joined the tck tck tck campaign, which is being led by Kofi Annan.

Mr. Milliband makes what I can only describe as "these platitudes to a low-carbon economy", but when it is pointed-out that investing money (=energy=CO2) at a return of a fraction of one percent per annum - in "Windfarms" for instance - is worse than doing nothing, and further that windfarms of a sensible design can actually help the situation, it's as though the phone-line just got sliced. I guess he's bizzy handing smelling-salts around to Vestas - etc.
