Liberal Party COP27 Statement

The Liberal Party welcomes the commencement of the COP27 conference in Egypt this week.

The target of containing a global temperature rise to within 1.5 degree is already in mortal danger and requires urgent action from world leaders of all political denominations.

Nations around the global share a common fate if they do not take action to contain global warming
as outlined in the opening address from the UN chief António Guterres.

We welcome the attendance of UK PM rishi Sunak at the summit  and believe the UK has a vital role in promoting the move to Net Zero and decarbonising the global economy.

The UK is not immune to the effects of a rapidly warming earth as this summer climate extremes of heatwave and torrential downpours have keenly shown and the political will and resources must be found to meet our national commitments.
