UK Response – IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5 WGI)

The UK Government Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Edward Davey responds to today’s publication of AR5 WGI:

“The message of this report is clear – the Earth’s climate has warmed over the last century and man-made greenhouse gases have caused much of that global warming. The gases emitted now are accumulating in the atmosphere and so the solutions must be set in motion today. The risks and costs of doing nothing today are so great, only a deeply irresponsible government would be so negligent.

Without urgent action to cut greenhouse gas emissions this warming will continue, with potentially dangerous impacts upon our societies and economy. This strengthens the case for international leaders to work for an ambitious, legally binding global agreement in 2015 to cut carbon emissions.”

Here is the UK Government Foreign Secretary’s response, which agrees with Edward Davey.
