February 2, 2005 12:00 AM

Earth.Norman Baker MP, Liberal Democrat Shadow Environment Secretary, commenting on the Climate Change conference being held today at the Hadley Centre in Exeter, said:

"Grandiose speeches on climate change are no substitute for action.

"The latest figures show that greater cuts in greenhouse gases are needed than previously thought. We need not only to meet the Kyoto targets, but also to agree further international reductions in emissions.

"The Prime Minister must not water down Kyoto in a futile attempt to bring George Bush on board."
