Miliband: Copenhagen was disappointing
The global climate change conference held in Denmark last month was "disappointing" in some respects, the energy secretary has claimed.

Ed Miliband said that the Copenhagen summit, which had been widely touted as the last chance for world leaders to make key decisions for the environment, had failed two of its main objectives.

These were establishing a timeline for a legal treaty that would bind nations to reduce their emissions and obtaining a commitment to cut down on carbon output.

However, the minister stressed there were positives gained from the summit as well.

"Following Copenhagen, as part of the work already ongoing on the roadmap to 2050, we are looking at whether further action is necessary to meet our low carbon obligations and will report back by the time of the Budget," Mr Miliband added.

"So while Copenhagen did not meet our expectations, 2009 did see the start of a new chapter in tackling climate change across the world."
