#2: G8 Part 2
After the G8, we ask Michael Meacher MP, former environment minister; Bob Ward, spokesperson, Royal Society; and Simon Retallack, International Climate Change Taskforce/IPPR: what is the pathway now for achieving the international agreement we urgently need to avoid the worst effects of climate change?
We assess the final G8 communique and action plan on climate change and look beyond to the UN talks in Montreal starting 28 November where serious post-Kyoto talks will begin.
We also look at a major new report looking at the link between oil extraction and debt in developing countries and the Climate Change Bill – launched at the House of Commons today (13th July 2005) by Michael Meacher MP – which would make annual CO2 reductions binding. The bill is supported by a coalition of organisations including WWF, Christian Aid, Friends of the Earth, Transport 2000, Help the Aged and World Development Movement.
