Green Government Must Try Harder

Last week I joined a campaign asking David Cameron to lead like a Prime Minister should, to have a world vision and to look beyond the current economic problems to the next 50 or 100 years. I emailed the Prime Minister asking him to commit to a reduction of 30% (rather than 20%) of our carbon emissions from 1990 levels by 2020 in a high profile speech next week. We're already on target to exceed our current 20% target so why not aim higher, especially when environmental bodies are telling us that we desperately need to to avoid dangerous climate change?

If you want to show your support and let Mr Cameron know how  important the environment is just click here.

Mr Cameron was scheduled to present this keynote speech tomorrow, but suddenly I'm reading that this will now only be introductory remarks before a meeting. This doesn't look great. Another news story along these lines are today's comments from the International Energy Agency about the lack of leadership and action from governments. They need to act now and they need to act bigger seems to be the message, but its not impossible, we have the technologies waiting we're just not using them.
