This article from the Telegraph speaks of Ed Miliband's tireless work in Copenhagen:
“Haven’t slept since Wed night,” an exhausted Ed Miliband tweeted on Friday evening. Then, four hours later: “trying to work out if i can sleep tonight”. And the next morning: “No sleep and still on plenary floor. Still fighting to get this. Alternative is nothing.”However it goes on to say that only half the population appreciate that there is an issue with the climate, and hence he doesn't have a good enough mandate. And so we have a job to do, to educate the public:
So let this be the aim for 2010: without alarmism and with great care and detail, climate scientists and NGOs must place a renewed emphasis on educating the public – in the most simple terms – that manmade global warming is a very serious threat to the planet. Until that has been achieved, our politicians will sleep well – because they know we don’t really care.
