The heads of Friends of the Earth US and Friends of the Earth England, Wales and Northern Ireland have urged Theresa May to challenge Donald Trump over climate change when the two leaders meet in Washington this Friday, (27 January)
Craig Bennett, chief executive of Friends of the Earth England, Wales and Northern Ireland, said:
“It will be an appalling betrayal of the UK’s science, values and global responsibility if Theresa May fails to challenge Donald Trump’s climate-wrecking agenda.
“Trump’s war on our environment has already begun. Silence is not acceptable – it will simply legitimise and normalise the new president’s climate denial.
The US may become a global pariah if it abandons action act on climate change
“Donald Trump must be warned that the US may become a global pariah if it abandons action act on climate change – the greatest threat to children alive today.
“With the world watching, this is a key opportunity for Theresa May to show bold international leadership on this crucial issue – or risk being seen as a weak and desperate underling in the ‘special relationship’ between the two nations.”
Erich Pica, president of Friends of the Earth US said:
“Donald Trump’s nationalistic policies threaten to upend international and national norms.
“A trade deal cut by the world’s biggest climate change denier, Donald Trump, further fuels this disruption. It would scuttle regulations and programs to address global warming.
“Trump and his trade team will put on the chopping block measures, on both sides of the Atlantic, related to chemical safety, sustainable family farms, food safety, and biotechnology, among many others.”
