Over 50 people attended the Northampton Climate Change Forum meeting in July to hear David Kidney, MP, Under Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change.  He spoke about the need for campaigners to maintain their pressure on Government, giving them the authority to aim higher as they prepared for the Copenhagen Climate Change meeting in December.  Government was committed to reducing Carbon emissions, but David did give strong support to nuclear power and the use of the as yet unproven clean coal.
