Climate at one minute to midnight, Boris Johnson says – BBC News

As world leaders gather for the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, UK PM Boris Johnson says action is needed.

Speaking to the BBC, Mr Johnson said leaders needed to move from “aspiration to action” to slow global warming.

He added the summit was a “critical” moment for him, and said an ambitious outcome was still “in the balance”.

For the first time, Mr Johnson also confirmed he did not want to see a controversial proposed coal mine in Cumbria go ahead.

“I’m not in favour of more coal,” said the prime minister. “But it is not a decision for me, it is a decision for the planning authorities.”

The government has been criticised for not stopping the mine project going ahead.
