Jenny Jones AM: Mr Mayor, I have been listening to your answers and I am actually quite concerned - I want to take you back to Paris and the talks - that you do not really get the urgency of climate change. You have talked about your ambitious projects, but actually I would say they are quite small-scale when you look at the size of the problem.
Mark Carney, who is Governor of the Bank of England, does not agree with your dinosaur colleagues. Can I call them ‘dinosaurs’? Is that OK? I think it is all right, is it not?
Tony Arbour AM (Deputy Chairman): It is not a rude word, is it?
Boris Johnson MP (Mayor of London): The world was a lot hotter when they were around, by the way. The world was a lot hotter when the dinosaurs were around and they coped with it.
Jenny Jones AM: Your dinosaur colleagues here do not and cannot understand that climate change is happening and that we need to have urgent measures in place. Mark Carney, the Governor of the Bank of England, said that he hoped people like Lloyds [of London] were anticipating broader global impacts on property, migration and political stability, as well as food and water security. That is the sort of thinking that you need to take to Paris. This is a big problem that will affect us all and we need some urgent measures.
