Leaders urge climate action

Have your say

FORMER Irish president Mary Robinson was set to join First Minister Alex Salmond in Edinburgh today to launch Scotland’s Climate Justice Fund.

The fund, due to be unveiled at Edinburgh University’s Playfair Library, aims to alleviate the impact of global warming on developing nations.

The pair were expected to urge other countries to share Scotland’s climate change ambitions — both by reducing their carbon emissions and implementing climate justice.
