Benefits of EU membership to UK Science and linked economies are clear. Good demographic:
 
Investment in #research and #innovation from the EU budget between 2007-2013 has improved scientific excellence in Europe, according to the evaluation of FP7, the EU research funding programme for 2007-2013.

If you want to know how much funding did each EU Member State receive under FP7 or how did FP7 projects benefit our economy and society, check all the info on the evaluation: http://europa.eu/!dN48CT

Hope agreement will be reached at the Paris Climate talks this weekend!
 
Climate talks go into overtime, deadline pushed to Saturday
Sleep-starved envoys tasked with saving mankind from catastrophic climate change aim to wrap up a historic Paris accord on Saturday after battling through a second all-night session of UN talks, the French hosts said.

Interesting little graphic on climate change.
 
How can we fight climate change? By taking action to limit greenhouse gas emissions and reduce our carbon footprint. This is called climate change mitigation (mitigate = to lessen).

The EU is taking action in all areas of its activity. This means more efficient use of less polluting energy, cleaner transport options, more environmentally-friendly land-use and agriculture... all parts of society play a role!

At the Paris climate conference ( #COP21 ) from 30 November to 11 December, countries from across the world will come together to seal a new global deal to fight climate change.

This article says it all. Did you wonder why the Tories have failed to solve the problems in the private rental market? "The Tory landlord MPs who don't care if rented homes aren't fit to live in".

Excellent info graphic on the benefits of UK's EU membership.
 
Check out this fantastic infographic which states four of the main reasons why the UK should stay in Europe. The EU Referendum is going to be the biggest political event this year by far and I’m looking forward to campaigning to stay in Europe.

It Is Clear That, From a National Security Point of View, Britain Is Stronger in Europe - good article by Lord Wallace - http://huff.to/1NIKMcm
Already the UK is kept more secure and has a stronger leadership role on the global stage because of our military co-operation with Europe. If we are to continue to reap these benefits though, we cannot countenance turning our back on the EU, pulling up the drawbridge and going it alone. We have to engage more widely with political elites in our partner countries to make sure that we build their support.

I really hope there will be concensus at the Paris Conference. Reaching agreement on CO2 emissions is a necessity and beyond politics.
 
Next week is the start of the United Nations Climate Change Conference, #COP21, in Paris. The objective? To achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world. Polar bears are already affected by climate change, what else is at stake? @ epgplus.eu/7x

Glad to see the world wide support for Paris after such a tragic weekend. Liberty Egality Fraternity.
 
Several of the world's most famous buildings were lit up with the colours of the French flag in a gesture of solidarity. #ParisAttacks
