UK NGOs press Blair over climate change

Britain's environmental movement has stepped up attacks on prime minister Tony Blair for allegedly backsliding over climate change policy. Early on Monday, Greenpeace activists dumped several tonnes of coal outside the prime minister's office. The group published a dossier detailing what they called Mr Blair's failings. Separately WWF claimed that Mr Blair's "international rhetoric on environmental issues masks the fact that he is poised to fail to deliver" on either climate change or the EU's Reach chemicals policy.
