Responding to a new report today by the World Economic Forum identifying climate change as the biggest potential threat to the global economy in 2016, Friends of the Earth’s senior energy campaigner Simon Bullock said: “The World Economic Forum is right to be concerned: Climate change poses a huge threat to our security and well-being.”

“Thousands of households and businesses across the UK have already been devastated by horrendous flooding this year. Experts warn that extreme weather like this will become more frequent and severe as climate change takes hold.

“World leaders must wake up to the growing clamour for rapid action to slash emissions.

“If David Cameron’s Government is serious about pursuing the “highest possible ambition” on climate change, its plans to get Britain off its fossil fuel dependency must be urgently updated.”
