Quotes

Connie Hedegaard, European Commissioner for Climate Action said: "no action is clearly the most expensive solution of all. why pay for the damages when we can invest in reducing our climate impacts and becoming a competitive low-carbon economy? taking action and taking a decision on the 2030 climate and energy framework in october, will bring us just there and make europe ready for the fight against climate change."
Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard said the decision is good news for reducing carbon emissions and, "not such good news for [russian president vladimir putin."
"Today the commission is sending a strong message on energy efficiency: a 30% energy savings target for 2030," said Hedegaard. "this is of course very good news for the climate. it’s also good news for investors, and it’s very good news for europe’s energy security and independence. meaning no such good news for putin."
