Disappointment all around after the end of the Copenhagen climate change talks. More reaction to follow, but credit has to be given for the tireless work by Gordon Brown & Ed Miliband at these talks, if only Obama and others followed their lead.
We have no option but to carry on, and push on and on for a legally binding deal that will keep the world from warming more than 2oC. And we must make sure the aid money agreed for adaptation is new money, not just diverted from existing aid budgets.
Here are a few links you might find useful to reflect on Copenhagen on Saturday morning:
- Gordon Brown vows to push for binding deal (Number 10 website)
- Gordon Brown interviewed on BBC
- Ed Miliband on BBC Today programme
- Oxfam International reaction
More reaction to follow on Monday, when we will be appearing on Labour List thanks to our friends at SERA. Now off to campaign on the doorstep with Young Labour as part of our Big Campaign Day – join the Facebook group to get involved!
