Prime Minister Makes Speech on Climate Change


David Cameron, the Prime Minister, has made a speech on climate change during the COP21 Climate Change Summit in Paris. The conference has been organised by the United Nations to help discuss what measures countries needed to take to limit the effects of climate change on the environment.

The Prime Minister repeated that action needed to be taken to avoid climate change and said that:

“What I’m saying is that instead of making excuses tomorrow to our children and grandchildren, we should be taking action against climate change today”.

Speaking at a rally held in London in advance of the conference, Jeremy Corbyn, the Leader of the Opposition, said:

“The issues facing the world in Paris this week are pollution, climate change, inequality, environmental refugees, war refugees and resources wars”.
