Good for Her Majesty

The Queen urged 53 Commonwealth countries gathered for a summit in Trinidad to forge a common stand on fighting climate change ahead of a world gathering on the matter next month at Copenhagen, reported the Globe and Mail.

“On this, the eve of the UN Copenhagen summit on climate change, the Commonwealth has an opportunity to lead once more,” the monarch said.

“The threat to our environment is not a new concern. But it is now a global challenge which will continue to affect the security and stability of millions for years to come.”

“Many of those affected are among the most vulnerable. And many of the people least well able to withstand the adverse effects of climate change live in the Commonwealth.”
