Ministers head to climate change talks

Date : 10th December 2009, Source : The Independent (UK)



A raft of Government ministers are heading to the UN climate talks in Copenhagen in the coming days in a bid to push for an ambitious deal, officials said today. Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Miliband is travelling to the talks in time for meetings from tomorrow with "key counterparts" including the US, China, South Africa and Denmark, and will be joined from Monday by Climate Change Minister Joan Ruddock. Environment Secretary Hilary Benn is heading to the Danish capital over the weekend to lobby for ambitious efforts to reduce deforestation - which accounts for almost a fifth of annual greenhouse gas emissions.
