Cate Blanchett urges business leaders to cut down on carbon emissions
London, May 27 (ANI): Cate Blanchett has urged global business leaders to cut down their carbon emissions and invest in eco-friendly schemes to save her native Australia from suffering more devastating bush fires.
The stunning actress made the plea at the World Business Summit on Climate Change in Copenhagen on May 25.
The Elizabeth star referred to the life shattering Victoria bush fire earlier this year to drive home the urgency to save the planet.
"Political failure at Copenhagen in December is quite simply unacceptable and this powerful room must play a major role in preventing this failure," the Daily Star quoted her as saying in the conference.
"Australia's best climate scientists have been warning us that we'll face many more catastrophic fire days in south-east Australia unless the world acts to dramatically cut greenhouse pollution," she added. (ANI)
