"Because of the urgency of climate change, we are committed to making this Government the greenest ever - taking urgent action at home and abroad.
"This isn't just an aspiration. It's essential. The actions of this Government in this Parliament will define our ability to combat climate change in the decades to come.
"That's why in the first week of this new Government, the Prime Minister announced Government departments would reduce their carbon emissions by 10% ..."
He said there were two major threats to the nation's energy security
- a growing dependence on the import of fossil fuels and the retirement of much
energy generating capacity.
"It's a scandal that in 2009 the UK still generates only 6.6% of our electricity from renewables.
"We have outstanding potential for renewable energy and yet we come second to bottom in the class of all 27 EU member states when it comes to our attainment from renewables. That must and will change."
More windmills then. There again, that 10% cut in emissions from Government depratments doesn't sound such a bad idea. Start by cutting 10% from the press departments in each.
That would cut down on emissions.
