Environment Minister Michael Meacher is calling the US to do its bit to stop global warming.

Mr Meacher, taking part in international talks in the Hague, says it is important the US plays its part in combating global pollution.

He told the BBC: "The important point is that the US has 4% of the world's population and accounts for 25% of global gas emissions and 36% of emissions from the industrialised world. That is why it's so important that they concentrate on the domestic economy - that is the cause of climate change."
