Government 'needs to deliver on green promises'
1 July 2009 — 5:00 PM
Following the prime minister's announcement regarding further funding to fight climate change, one environmental expert has called for further commitment.
Gordon Brown unveiled plans for a £60 million package designed to aid developing countries reduce carbon emissions and tackle deforestation, but a spokesman for the Green Alliance has noted words are not enough.
Stephen Hale, director of the independent eco-organisation, said although the Labour leader is targeting the "issue that matters", he will be judged only on whether he lives up to his promises.
"[The announcement] could be the first big step towards a global agreement," he explained, adding: "That will only happen if he works with others to develop and improve his proposals. The prime minister must go further - and quickly."
According to a press release from the Department of Energy and Climate Change put out on June 26th, upcoming climate negotiations in Copenhagen must be "ambitious, effective [and] fair."
