Responding to Michael Gove's speech on the latest climate change projections, Green Party MP Caroline Lucas said:
"These projections paint a devastating picture of what climate breakdown means for the UK if we continue down the path we're on. Michael Gove's vague talk of mitigating the worst impacts of floods, droughts and storms are far from reassuring.
"It's increasingly clear the Government isn't going to embark on the urgent economic transformation we need to secure our futures. It's now up to Parliament to create a Select Committee on Climate Change to pile pressure on ministers and chart a course out of this crisis.
