The European Union’s conditional offer of reducing carbon emmissions by 30% is still on.
Several participants at an informal meeting of European environment ministers in Seville in southeastern Spain said the proposal must remain on the table in the wake of the failed Copenhagen summit to keep the momentum in global climate talks going.
“We definitely think we should maintain the 30 percent offer. We think it is very, very important. It has always been a conditional offer but it is a very important signal that it is maintained,” British Energy and Climate Change Minister Ed Miliband told reporters.
The 27-nation European Union had agreed ahead of the climate talks in Denmark to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 20 percent over the next decade from 1990 levels and to deepen those cuts to 30 percent if other nations followed suit.
But the offer failed to inspire other nations to raise their targets for emissions cuts as had been hoped.
This special offer is sure to send soon, so act now while supplies last!
