World: Fighting words: Britain’s climate secretary blames China for failures

  • Ed Miliband sounds frustrated here. But in other comments he made about the giant ball of failure that was the Copenhagen summit, the British Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change sounded pissed off specifically at China, which he argued used its power to veto a stronger climate agreement despite the fact that the strongest restrictions would not have directly affected them (but would have affected the countries suggesting them). Miliband and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown are the leading voices in saying that the process of diplomacy on climate change is broken and needs to be fixed. source
