Ed Miliband is right, says FoE

Ed Miliband is right, says FoE
Energy and climate change secretary Ed Miliband has been praised by Friends of the Earth (FoE).

The minister called on delegates at the UN climate change summit in Copenhagen yesterday (December 14th) to 'get their act together'.

Mr Miliband's comments were made after African representatives led a temporary boycott of the summit, accusing more affluent nations of conspiring to reduce their carbon emission commitments.

FoE's senior international climate campaigner, Asad Rehman, commented that Mr Miliband was 'in the right'.

"In reiterating his support for a global carbon market, Ed Miliband is flirting with a double whammy of environmental and economic disaster - trading carbon is trading thin air. These proposals risk a speculative bubble similar to the sub- prime mortgage crisis," he said.

"Ministers must instead commit more public money to enable developing countries to grow cleanly and adapt to the impacts of climate change which are already causing suffering to millions around the world."

Prime minister Gordon Brown is set to arrive in the Danish capital today (December 15th) to attend the conference.

Talks are scheduled to conclude later this week.
