  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson: Tackling climate emergency is not a ‘politically correct act of bunny hugging'” – below is their description.

    Climate change policy is not an “expensive politically-correct green act of bunny-hugging”, the Prime Minister has told a conference of world leaders.

    In a speech at the US-convened virtual summit, Boris Johnson said that “growth and jobs” were a key part of cutting emissions and meeting climate goals.

    It came after US President Joe Biden announced a new target to cut US greenhouse gas pollution by at least half by 2030, as he convened the summit of world leaders, the first in a series expected this year, culminating in COP26, due to be hosted by the UK in Glasgow in November.
