Top scientist makes climate plea

World leaders have been urged to put more money into developing new energy technologies to tackle global warming.

Royal Society president Professor Sir Martin Rees wants a publicly funded international research programme, he says in the US journal Science.

Professor Rees says a pledge to increase governments’ investments in energy technologies should have been made at the recent G8 summit in Russia.

He describes a “worrisome lack of determination” among world leaders.
