In 2006 WWF took David Cameron to the Arctic to see first-hand the effects of climate change.
On his return, he helped secure the UK’s world-leading Climate Change Act. In 2010 he pledged to lead the ‘greenest government ever’. He then fell silent, while others in his party have been undermining his promises.
On 4 February 2013, Mr Cameron broke his silence: “to those who say we just can’t afford to prioritise green energy right now, my view is we can’t afford not to”.
Mr Cameron has found his voice on tackling climate change, but it’s still a whisper. Will he now publicly reassert his commitment and move the UK away from fossil fuels to clean, green renewable energy?
