Commenting on the resignation today of Chris Huhne, secretary of state for energy and climate change, Margaret Ounsley, head of public affairs, WWF-UK, said

"Chris Huhne understood the very complex issue of climate change, and fought his corner long and hard within the government to ensure that core policies, such as the fourth carbon budget, were delivered, against the nay-saying of the Treasury.

His negotiating skills in Cancun were also key in helping to get the climate change talks back on track after Copenhagen. Whoever succeeds him will have some tough battles ahead of them in order to ensure that the ambition of the Climate Change Act is delivered."
