Northern Ireland's Environment Minister Sammy Wilson has blocked a government advertisement campaign on climate change. The advertisements urged people to reduce energy consumption and cut carbon dioxide output.
Mr Wilson said the Scottish executive had objected to the advertisements and stopped them being broadcast. He said the adverts were part of an "insidious propaganda campaign" which would not be imposed on people in NI.
Mr Wilson said they were "giving people the impression that by turning off the standby light on their TV they could save the world from melting glaciers and being submerged in 40ft of water".
He said that was "patent nonsense".
