To Paris this December for the United Nations Climate Change Conference. In light of that, the BBC are pulling out all the stops in telling us do as the scientists say. Environment Correspondent Helen Briggs has treated readers to an account of how the signing of the Montreal Protocol saved the world by stopping the Ozone hole from expanding.
As luck would have it, one of the scientists who discovered the Ozone hole, believes that there are strong parallels between Montreal and the upcoming Conference in Paris.
”The protocol provides a lesson for the future and we must hope that the coming climate change talks show the same foresight and result in a treaty that will benefit the whole planet”
What better way to soften the ground for Paris then by telling people they would be dying from cancer if they hadn’t listened to the scientists last time…
