The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson says the world can’t recycle its way out of climate change” – below is their description.

Boris Johnson has said that humans can’t rely on recycling to be a main solution to tackle climate change.

The Prime Minister told a children’s press conference ahead of COP 26 that recycling “isn’t the answer – you’re not going to like this but recycling doesn’t begin to address the problem”.

What has to be done is “stop the production of plastics” in the first place, he said, talking over Tanya Steele, Chief Executive of WWF UK, who suggested that it can be helpful. 

Recycling is a “red herring”, he added.  “If people think we can recycle our way out of the problem they will be making a huge mistake.”
