Boris vows to make Britain 'the Qatar of hydrogen' and says 'green is good' as he woos business chiefs including Bill Gates at glitzy summit urging them to invest 'trillions' in tackling climate change

Boris Johnson vowed to make Britain the 'Qatar of hydrogen' today as he wooed businesses chiefs including Bill Gates at a glitzy summit - urging them to invest 'trillions' in tackling climate change.

The PM gave a speech and chatted to the Microsoft billionaire on stage as he asked industry leaders to commit funding to decarbonising the world economy - insisting 'green is good, green is right'.

He said the UK had a responsibility to act on cutting emissions as 'we were the first to knit the deadly tea cosy of CO2' - pointing to the 'big bets' the government is making on electric vehicles and gigafactories for battery production.
