Here is a new-ish angle on climate change. The UK's climate and energy security envoy Rear Admiral Morisetti has set out his role. It’s I think unique in the world, and a good thing.
The climate security message was also underlined by President Obama at Copenhagen in December. One particular point in his statement stands out:
“This is not fiction, this is science. Unchecked, climate change will pose unacceptable risks to our security, our economies, and our planet. That much we know. So the question before us is no longer the nature of the challenge – the question is our capacity to meet it. For while the reality of climate change is not in doubt, our ability to take collective action hangs in the balance.”
It is clear that we still have much work to do. But the UK remains completely committed to a global deal to avoid catastrophic climate change. And people like Rear Admiral Morisetti – and all our staff working on climate change right across the FCO’s network - are out there right now making the argument.
