"Sammy Wilson needs to grow up and wise up" de Brún

European Parliament Climate Change Committee and Environment Committee member Bairbre de Brún MEP has branded as "disgraceful" Environment Minister Sammy Wilson's suggestion that the debate on whether humans have contributed to climate change is overdue. "That debate has happened and has been concluded" said Ms de Brún, "These statements fly in the face of scientific concensus across the globe.

"While Sammy Wilson's clowning approach to politics was tolerated while he was in opposition, the ramifications of his approach as Environment Minister could be very harmful to the health and wellbeing of future generations.

"The European Parliament is working on hugely important climate and energy legislation and when it is passed Sammy Wilson will have to implement it whether he likes it or not. Even five -year olds in primary school now know about the dangers of cliamte change. Sammy Wilson needs to grow up and wise up." ENDS
