Environmental activists have indicated they will continue blocking the M25 despite facing up to two years in prison. Insulate Britain said in a statement that “right now our campaign goes on” after having shut down parts of the M25 five times in just over a week. The Government successfully applied to the High Court for an order which prohibits anyone from blocking the busy motorway.

Speaking to LBC, Dr Jones said: “I don’t think it’s going to stop the protests. We haven’t got the details of the injunction so we will have to see what happens.

“The essence is that we have a really serious problem here.

“We’ve got a climate crisis which is terrifying, we’ve got a Government which is doing absolutely nothing at the pace and scale that’s required.”

Mr Dale interjected: “That’s not true, is it? They are doing a lot.”

Dr Jones continued: “The UK is one of the largest contributors historically; we have a duty, we are leading the COP26 process.

“This Government talks the talk, I am terrified by the climate crisis but I’m more terrified by our Government’s empty promises.”

He added that he is “miserable” about the M25 protests.

Mr Dale hit back: “You’ll be even more miserable when someone gets killed”.

M25: Boris Johnson says protests are ‘crazy’

“At some point, someone’s going to get killed and it’ll be down to people like you.”

It comes as Boris Johnson told world leaders, as he spoke of the upcoming Glasgow COP26 summit as “the turning point for humanity”.

Mr Johnson addressed the United Nations General Assembly in the early hours of Thursday in a speech in which he conceded a rise in temperatures was inevitable but said we can hope to “restrain that growth”.

Tom Rivett-Carnac, former political strategist for ex-UN climate chief Christiana Figueres, said the fact Mr Johnson used his speech at the UN General Assembly to talk about the environment shows “how seriously” the UK is taking its climate commitments ahead of the Glasgow Cop26 summit.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, he said: “He gave his entire speech about climate change… it’s an indication of how seriously this is being taken.

“What he didn’t do was announce new commitments on the climate for the UK, but he didn’t really need to.

“The UK commitments – ending the internal combustion engine sales by 2030, 78 percent reduction by 2035 – are already impressive in global terms, so the UK can already claim it’s leading.

“This was about the PM saying ‘the UK is doing this, we’ve shown it’s possible, we’re financing others to help them, let’s all come to Glasgow and seal the deal with everyone’.”
