Time for politicians to feel the heat, as UN reveals 13 of 14 warmest years on record in 21st century
Reacting to news today (Monday 24 March 2014) from the UN that 13 of the 14 warmest years on record have occurred in the 21st century, Friends of the Earth Executive Director Andy Atkins said:
“The world is failing to tackle the stark reality of climate change because too many politicians cave in to lobbying from polluting companies.
“Until our leaders end their fossil fuel addiction and put the interests of ordinary people first, they will continue to dither over the urgent steps needed to stop the planet speeding towards a climate disaster.”
