Ed slams PM over climate change 'dithering'

Ed slams PM over climate change 'dithering'

Ed Miliband has urged  the Government to commit to a 2030 de-carbonisation target, accusing ministers of "dithering" on climate change and "pandering to sceptics".

In a speech at a wind farm in Scotland, the Labour leader hit out at the Coalition for "throwing away" the opportunities presented by the green economy, as investors interested in technology "shut their wallets or go elsewhere".

"Since this Government came to power, investment in renewable energy hasn’t gone up, it hasn’t even stagnated - it has halved," said.

"David Cameron promised that this Government would be the greenest government ever. But this Government is not up to the task."

He called on the Prime Minister to include in the forthcoming energy bill a commitment to de-carbonisation targets in 2030, saying governments around the world are looking to the UK for leadership.

"That is what I would do if I was in Downing Street now and that is what this Prime Minister - who once flew halfway across Europe to hug a huskie - should do," added.

"We are not getting leadership from this Government in Westminster. All we get is dither and delay."
