Us Government And Climate Change

EDM number 1881 in 2003-04, proposed by Norman Baker on 04/11/2004.

That this House deplores in the strongest possible terms the unfounded and insulting criticism of Sir David King, the Government's Chief Scientist, by Myron Ebell, an adviser to US President George W. Bush, on climate change; notes that Mr Ebell is Director of Global Warming and International Environment Policy at the Competitive Enterprise Institute in Washington, an organisation funded by, amongst others, Exxon Mobil and the American Petroleum Institute; fervently hopes that Mr Ebell's comments do not represent official US policy; congratulates Sir David King on the work he has done to raise the issue of global warming both at home and abroad; believes that the planet cannot afford another four years of inaction and denial from the US Administration; and calls on the Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary to do everything possible to get President Bush to accept the need to take climate change seriously and ensure the US plays its part internationally in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

This motion has been signed by a total of 66 MPs.
