Copenhagen climate change summit: Brown pledges Â£1.5billion towards EU fund to tackle global warming
'Gordon Brown has pledged at least Â£1.5 billion of public money towards an EU fund to combat global warming, he confirmed today. Despite the UKâ€™s staggering levels of national debt, the money will form part of a Â£10billion European fund to fast track efforts to help poorer nations tackle climate change. Mr Brown said Europe was ready to promise firm action next week at the climate change talks in Copenhagen.'
