Climate change isn’t a hoax – and unless we move rapidly to slash emissions we risk a global catastrophe" said Friends of the Earth CEO Craig Bennett, reacting to news that 2016 was the hottest year on record across the world. He continued: “This is a clear warning that world leaders, including the incoming US president, mustn’t ignore. “It’s time to ditch our reliance on gas, coal and oil and fully embrace the clean energy revolution that is already upon us.” ENDS
