Britain is currently blocking climate change from the main agenda of the upcoming G8.
Worryingly, climate scientists have linked the harsh winter in Europe and North America to climate change. Freezing temperatures across the northern hemisphere have been connected to record arctic ice melt and its effects on the ocean and wind patterns; a result of climate change.
As the people of the Global North are witnessing first hand devastating effects of climate change, their leaders are dangerously refusing to address climate change seriously. Despite moves by France and Germany to include climate change in the upcoming G8’s main agenda, Britain is opposing its inclusion, meaning it does not need to be addressed at all. With the date for a new UN climate change agreement set for 2015, it is essential that powerful nations such as the G8 members take practical steps to pave the way for this.
The G8 agenda will be finalized in April. If we act now, we still have time to ensure climate change is a key point in the upcoming G8 summit.
