The Director of Walker Institute, Professor Ros Walker is among the many leading scientists in UK climate research to sign a letter calling on Prime Minister Theresa May to use the UK's "special relationship" with the US to influence President Donald Trump and his administration on climate change.
'We believe that the United Kingdom must be prepared to respond decisively to these developments. The United Kingdom has been at the forefront of international climate change research and evidence-based policy-making for more than 30 years. Margaret Thatcher was the first world leader to publicly acknowledge the risks of climate change in 1988, and established the Hadley Centre at the Met Office, now internationally renowned for its climate change research.
For many years, climate change researchers in the United States and United Kingdom have worked extensively with each other and with researchers from across the world. We stand ready to support and assist our counterparts in the United States, as collaborators, co-authors and colleagues, in resisting any political attempts to prevent, hamper or interfere with vital research on climate change."
Climate change poses a huge threat to us all, and responding to these issues requires a truly interdisciplinary approach worldwide. We are a community of researchers, policy-makers, practitioners, and users working together to enable the development of climate-resilient societies in some of the world's most fragile, conflict-affected Low Income Countries. Our research is helping us to address some of the fundamental questions currently facing development and encompassing social, economic, technological, and political strategies which are being implemented at all scales of society.
