This afternoon Liz asked the Foreign Secretary what progress has been made through international cooperation on tackling climate change, as this issue becomes increasingly important.
His answer was not reassuring. It is clear that climate change is not a priority for this government. It was recently revealed that the government is set to woefully miss its climate targets by almost 50 years. If progress continues at its current rate, the government target of reaching “net zero” carbon emissions by 2050 will not be met until 2099. The government need to do more to tackle climate change, and they need to do it soon.
