Motion text

That this House supports WWF's Earth Hour 2009 which seeks to persuade a billion people worldwide to sign up to switch off their lights for an hour at 8.30 pm on Saturday 28 March to indicate to political leaders the widespread public support for a fair, equitable, binding and scientifically credible global deal on climate change; notes that the new global deal needs to be agreed in Copenhagen in December 2009; recognises the global lead that the UK has shown with the new Climate Change Act; acknowledges the key roles for the UK and Europe in promoting a post-2012 UN climate agreement building on the Kyoto Protocol; recognises that developed countries have an historic responsibility for contributing to climate change and therefore have an obligation under a global deal to provide sufficient resources above official development aid to support mitigation and adaptation in poorer nations and to prevent deforestation; and calls upon the Government to take a proactive, progressive and leading role throughout the 2009 negotiations.
