Commenting on David Cameron’s speech to the Conservative Party conference today, Friends of the Earth’s Executive Director Andy Atkins said:

“With not a mention of climate change, this was not the speech we would have expected from the Prime Minister of the self-declared ‘greenest Government ever’. 

“David Cameron won a real reputation in opposition for championing green issues – it would be a huge mistake to sideline them now he is in power.
 
“If the UK is to reap the huge financial benefits of developing a low-carbon economy, bold policies to achieve this must be at the forefront of government thinking, not consigned to the margins.”
