Rock stars belt it out on climate; ENVIRONMENT.

Byline: By MIKE SWAIN, Science Editor

ROCK stars including Thom Yorke and KT Tunstall joined forces to call for a stronger law on climate change yesterday.

And Razorlight frontman Johnny Borrall is contributing to Friends of the Earth's Big Ask campaign by playing a gig at the Science Museum.

Borrall said it was "unbelievable that the Government plans to ignore emissions from aviation and shipping" when assessing the UK's carbon count for the Climate Change Bill.

Radiohead star Yorke said: "A climate change law is fantastic news. Now we just need to make sure it is strong enough."

And Tunstall added: "To not include UK aviation and shipping carbon emissions in the calculations makes the bill a joke."

Borrall will play his one-off gig at the London museum on June 3.
