Confused by the recent Emissions Deadlines stories?

The Chaos of the Copenhagen Summit in December 2009 continues with news a couple of weeks ago that the Deadline for emission targets was likely to be delayed as countries within the EU battled it out.

One of the main problems is the 'EU's agreed amount of 30% emissions cut which in the case of the UK, means a cut of 42%.

Countries are unwilling to agree to targets that could see industrial competitors in other countries grow stronger if they're not affected by the same higher energy costs.

The BBC had an excellent round up, so go and get your licence fee's worth by clicking here to read the BBC report.
