Miliband Optimistic About Copenhagen
British Energy Secretary Ed Miliband, in Sweden for the Åre meetings, said on Friday to Swedish TV News that he was looking forward to working closely with Sweden and Denmark in the months to come in order to come to an ambitious agreement in Copenhagen.
Miliband also spoke about the situation in the UK and said that he was anticipating many new jobs created as a result of the “green revolution” a programme he launched in the UK last week. Miliband’s green revolution entails a new way of thinking about energy, new ways for Britons to heat and insulate their houses as well as changed travelling habits. The aim is to reduce British emissions by a third by 2020 compared to 1990.
He also stated that Britain would welcome any company to the UK which wanted to produce low or renewable energy, and that he knew that there was huge expertise in the area in Sweden, which in many ways has led the way not just in Europe but in the world.
