 Boris the new greener brave

Tackling climate change is about "growth and jobs" not "expensive bunny hugging", Boris Johnson has said.

Speaking at a virtual summit, the prime minister told world leaders "we can build back better from this pandemic by building back greener."

At the same event, US President Joe Biden pledged to cut carbon emissions by 50-52% below 2005 levels by 2030.

Mr Johnson praised Mr Biden for "returning the US to the front rank of the fight against climate change".

Oh but wait on hud yer horses :-

The leading climate scientist James Hansen has warned Boris Johnson that he risks “humiliation“ over plans for a new coal mine in Cumbria.

The UK government, which hosts a climate summit this year, has allowed the mine at Whitehaven to go ahead.

Dr Hansen, formerly Nasa`s leading global warming researcher, urged the PM to halt production - or be "vilified".

No 10 said the UK was a world leader on climate change, but would not reverse the local council decision on the mine.

Back in my day we slagged the Tories for closing coal mines ;)
