Question 2

Question 2

What is the obstacle for DEFRA from accepting that there is an emergency?

Points

No time for mitigation. Need transformative and deep adaptation.

Take holistic approach to climate and ecological emergency.

Reduction / elimination of Discount rates from the Treasury to big business.

COBRA style meetings to review management of targets.

Massive Public information Campaign about climate change (bigger than AIDS campaign)

Not saying no, but statement needs follow up and DEFRA and Government are not in position to do that today.

It is not just DEFRA's problem, it needs consensus from right across Government.
