Next year crucial for climate change, says Miliband

Next year crucial for climate change, says Miliband
Despite good progress in 2008, next year will be even more crucial when it comes to tackling climate change, it has been suggested.

Energy and climate change secretary Ed Miliband said that the new year will be an important one regarding moving forward on green issues.

"We have seen significant progress during 2008 in our goals of developing secure, affordable and clean energy and tackling the threat of global warming," he said.

"In 2009, the world will meet again to agree a new international deal on climate change, while in the UK we will be laying out the groundwork for long-term energy efficiency improvements and carbon reduction measures."

He added that the next 12 months will be "crucial" for negotiating a "meaningful, binding climate change deal in Copenhagen" and that there was still "much to be done".

The newly founded Department of Energy and Climate Change have already made some notable progress.

This includes the introduction of the Climate Change Act which made the UK the first country to establish a legally-binding framework to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
