MCFly 27- Dog Day Afternoon

June 23 A Manchester-based climate academic has yet again given good sound-bite . The shy and equivocal Kevin Anderson, director of the Tyndall Centre, compared DECC and DEFRA – the two government departments most directly involved with climate change policy- to “small dogs yapping at the heels” of more powerful departments (e.g. those run by the business secretary, Lord Mandelson). Oh, and he says that adopting UK policies globally would give only a 50/50 chance of keeping under two degrees global temperature rise, and he’s got the maths to prove it. www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2009/jun/23/anderson-climate-change-uk-emissions
