Activists from Friends of the Earth Scotland inflated a two-metre globe outside the Scottish Government office at St Andrew’s House in Edinburgh recently.
The plastic globe featured NASA heat maps that show average temperature rises across the planet.
The Scottish Government has just finished consulting on new climate targets and is now aiming to introduce a Climate Change Bill to Parliament early next year. It has proposed a 90% emissions cut on 1990 levels by 2050.
Friends of the Earth Scotland wants the Scottish Government to commit to becoming a zero emissions nation by 2040, with a cut of 77% by 2030.
