ABERDEEN has a “moral duty” to tackle climate change, a city MP has told delegates at the SNP conference’s first day in the Granite City.
Aberdeen South MP Callum McCaig, the SNP’s Westminster spokesman for energy and climate change, said he was proud of the city’s action to tackle climate change, including the introduction of Europe’s largest fleet of hydrogen buses.
But Mr McCaig said more needs to be done and called on Aberdonians to support action to reduce carbon emissions.
Mr McCaig said it made sense for the oil and gas industry to be on board with reducing climate change as North Sea energy is a finite resource.
Mr McCaig said he hoped Scotland would lead the way in securing a worldwide agreement to limit global warming to 2C by the year 2100.
