Differences Over Climate Change

The UN Climate Change Report presented Friday in Paris

At least two of the parties in Sweden’s center-right government seem to have varying positions on the problems of climate change.

The Liberal Party has called for an extra parliamentary debate on the issue, against the background of the recent reports from the United Nations and Britain. The party’s climate and energy spokesman, Carl B. Hamilton, says Sweden must formulate how it will deal with carbon dioxide emissions.

But on Saturday Conservative Moderate Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt repeated his position that it is primarily other countries that will have to reduce emissions.

While Reinfeldt says Swedes should be environmentally conscious, he points out that since the Kyoto protocol was adopted in 1990, Sweden has had 36 percent economic growth, while greenhouse gas emissions were reduced by 7 percent.

Reinfeldt mentions Brazil, the United States, and Africa as areas where more can be done.
