Global Warming London
Dating has found a new partner. Global warming. A speed dating event organised by the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition attracted senior party members to move from table to table, convincing 700 environmental activists of their solutions to global warming.
The pick-up line at the 'Carbon Dating' event in London had absolutely nothing to do with coffee or drinks or who would go home with whom. Instead, climate change and carbon trading proved to be the keywords. Party members were out in their oratorical best, trying to woo the other side.
Opposition Conservative leader David Cameron, who has made climate change and the environment core issues for his party, said that global warming should not be a party political issue as everyone was responsible for it and should be involved in the matter. But Menzies Campbell of the Liberal Democrats emerged as a hot favourite, thanks to his knowledge of foreign policies, which won the support of activists interested in development issues and global warming.
