UK TO EUROPE: TREES NOT TRICKS!

A European trio -- Sweden, Finland and Austria -- is leading a push for an accounting trick that would let rich countries cut down as many trees as they wanted, without having to report the increased climate damage.

If they succeed, it could spell disaster for forests, the people who rely on them, and the already stuttering global climate negotiations.

The UK is well-placed to rally other European countries and stop this scam. But the new government hasn’t yet made up its mind on the issue. We know they want to be seen as the greenest government ever, and this is their chance to start strongly on the international climate stage. Let’s send a flood of messages to Climate Minister, Chris Huhne, urging him to be bold on climate and make forests count at next week’s meeting.
