On Valentine’s Day this year the Prime Minister David Cameron, then Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and then Leader of the Opposition Ed Miliband agreed to work together across party lines to tackle climate change. You can read the agreement here. Only Cameron remains in office, but he must still honour it.
On signing the agreement Cameron said: “Climate change poses a threat not just to the environment, but also to poverty eradication abroad and to economic prosperity at home. I strongly support a global deal at Paris this year to tackle that threat head-on.”
Together David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg pledged:
– To seek a fair, strong, legally binding, global climate deal which limits temperature rises to below 2°C.
– To work together, across party lines, to agree carbon budgets in accordance with the Climate Change Act.
– To accelerate the transition to a competitive, energy efficient low carbon economy and to end the use of unabated coal for power generation.
At the time Former vice president of the USA, Al Gore, said: “This agreement represents inspiring leadership and true statesmanship by all three men. The political courage it represents on all sides is exactly what our world most needs in order to solve the climate crisis. Thank you! Thank you! And thank you!”
Only the Prime Minister remains in office after May’s general election and we urge him to honour the pledge he made nine short months ago.
