This morning I got up early to take the train down to London to take part in 'The Wave' climate change demonstration.
'The Wave' was aimed at demonstraiting to world leaders how important action against climate change is. The Liberal Democrats demanded at The Wave that the Government takes real action whilst at the same time, showing that the Lib Dems are the only party with the ambition and policies to reverse climate change.
But local councils also need to take action to tackle climate change. That is why I discussed with Nick Clegg, the Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Manchester's City Council's poor record on climate change. In particular the failure to spend money earmarked to tackle climate change and the exclusion of the airport from the city's Co2 emmisions.
I think we did a really good job at demonstating how important climate change is and will be, and put pressure on the government to make the right decisions at the Copenhagen Summit on climate change.
