Because they will get invited on to programmes like Politics Live (today) and also get invited by the Labour Party to help shape the future legislation required to achieve their goals.

That probably wouldn't happen in China, Russia etc. Our leaders fell over themselves to meet up with them, I can't see Trump rushing to meet them.

There's political capital to be made from a climate emergency and we have helped to increase that for them.
