UK wants "ambitious approach" to climate change
A new manifesto for dealing with global climate change from the government calls for an ambitious approach.
The Road to Copenhagen describes the UK authorities' policies for tackling climate change, six months ahead of negotiations on environmental issues in the Danish capital.
Limiting climate change to two degrees, ensuring all countries adhere to the agreement and supporting the poorest countries in their endeavours to make changes are among the recommendations in the document.
Ed Miliband, UK climate and energy secretary, said: "This is make or break time for our climate and our future. With less than six months to go before crunch negotiations in Copenhagen, it's clear that there is no plan B for the planet.
"The world's got no option but to work together to get a global climate deal that's ambitious, effective and fair. Our climate manifesto puts the British public in the front and centre of our efforts to get a climate deal."
The government is aiming to reduce carbon emissions by 80 per cent by 2050.
