The Rio-UK Declaration says: "The UK should lead the world in the transition to a fair and green economy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, protecting biodiversity and creating jobs and opportunities to reduce poverty and inequality here and overseas."
Transition Lincoln member Geoff Stratford, 64, of Carlton Boulevard, said: "The science behind global warming is absolutely clear and it is vital we do something about it.
"It's an international process and the UK should play a part. "Politicians have got their heads in the sand and they need to be more open about the science."
