CONTRACTION AND CONVERGENCE
EDM #538
Tabled 18 January 2005
2004-05 Session
That this House recognises the serious threat posed to all life on this planet by climate change as a result of increasing greenhouse gas emissions; notes with grave concern the continued failure of the United States federal administration in particular to join international efforts to cut these emissions levels; further notes the extreme differences in emissions levels per head between nations; recognises that the objections of non-signatories to the Kyoto Treaty that it does not include rapidly developing nations such as India and China requires the need for a new global policy to tackle climate change beyond Kyoto; therefore advocates a policy of contraction and convergence, in which all nations seek to reduce their levels of greenhouse gas emissions, and converge emissions levels towards a point where all citizens of the world are entitled to emit equal amounts of pollutants recalls the Prime Minister's promise to make tackling climate change a priority for the United Kingdom's presidencies of the EU and G8 this year; and urges the Government to adopt this policy and use this opportunity to urge other national governments to do likewise.
