David Miliband spoke on why it is only the progressive left that are in a position to tackle climate change, and welcomed the release of the pamphlet. Rachel said, “I really enjoyed the event. There was an excellent turnout, and all of the speakers were very interesting. It is crucial that we get a deal at Copenhagen.”

Also speaking at the event were Emily Thornbery MP and Andrew Pakes, who is Chair of SERA (the Labour Party’s environment campaign) and the Labour/Co-op parliamentary candidate in Milton Keynes North. The pamphlet is published by SERA, and the event was organised by Progress and SERA.
