Friends of the Earth’s Head of Campaigns, Andrew Pendleton, has commented on the possibility that this year could be the hottest ever recorded globally:

“This is an urgent memo from the planet to President-elect Trump, Theresa May and any other leaders that think tackling climate change isn’t important.

“While Trump denies the existence of climate change, and May approves fracking and Heathrow expansion, our planet is warming fast and time for action is ticking down.

“It’s still possible to stop the worst effects of climate change, but it requires us to stop using coal, oil and gas in less than a generation – and put growingly affordable renewable energy in their place.”
