COP28 King’s Speech reaction: Dire warnings are meaningless unless backed by action

Date: 1 December 2023
Campaigns: Climate

Izzie McIntosh, climate campaign manager at Global Justice Now said:

King Charles’s dire warnings are meaningless unless the UK government backs them up with actions. Instead, Rishi Sunak has been rolling back net zero plans, expanding North Sea oil and gas, and is now fiddling the figures on climate finance. Rich polluting countries saying the right thing while doing the wrong thing has become all too familiar over 30 years of climate summits – the only difference this time is that in Charles and Rishi it’s a deceitful double act.”
