Business giants urge warming action

Business giants urge warming action – Global news analyst WebDB – Blog

Big business added its voice on Thursday to a growing crescendo of calls on the governments of the world’s richest nations to take urgent action to curb potentially catastrophic global warming.

The call follows a similar appeal from the world’s top scientists and comes four weeks before leaders of the Group of Eight — along with China, Brazil, South Africa, India and Mexico — meet in Scotland to discuss the climate crisis.

“We share the belief that climate change poses one of the most significant challenges of the 21st century,” said moguls from multinationals including car maker Ford, airline British Airways, bank HSBC, electricity generator EdF and oil major BP.

“We agree that the science is sufficiently compelling to warrant action by both the private and public sector, and … action must be initiated now,” the business moguls said in a statement issued in London.

While most scientists agree the burning of fossil fuels for transport and to generate electricity is a major contributor to potentially catastrophic climate change, the United States under President George W. Bush is unconvinced and antagonistic.

British Prime Minister Tony Blair has made tackling global warming, with its rising sea levels, increases in droughts and floods and threats to the lives of millions of the world’s poorest people, a key goal of his 2005 presidency of the G8.
