Good Morning Britain hosts Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard welcomed Kwasi Kwarteng onto the show to discuss the climate change strikes across the globe and what the government is doing to help. The pair were shocked when meteorologist Laura Tobin jumped in to grill the Tory MP.
Ben said: “Our meteorologist who’s in the studio, Laura, knows about this sort of thing.
“When you were saying, it’s not an emergency, she was disclaiming that. She’s saying it absolutely is an emergency.”
Kwasi hit back: “I think it’s a serious crisis, we can argue about the words, I think it’s a serious crisis…”
“It is an emergency and yes, it is great that we have committed to be carbon neutral by the year 2050 but there are no policies in place and there are only two countries in the world, Morocco and the Gambia that are actually set to meet their targets out of the whole world.
