Europe’s leaders meet in Brussels today to sign a binding agreement to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 20 per cent by 2020, a figure that would rise to 30 per cent if the US follows suit.

Mr Gore argued: “I’m trying to get my country to change its policies but in the meantime the European Union is absolutely key to helping the world make the changes it must.”
