An attempt by European Union environment ministers to strengthen EU action to combat climate change was blocked by Poland last night, prompting a swift rebuke from the energy minister Chris Huhne.
歐盟的環境部長們加強歐盟行動去應對氣候變化的企圖,昨晚被波蘭阻擋了,促使能源部長克里斯休恩的迅速訓斥。
"I'm deeply disappointed that the only country in the EU that could not accept a good compromise on how we can move Europe to a low carbon economy was Poland," he said in a statement.
“我深深失望,歐盟唯一的國家無法接受一個好妥協,在我們如何將歐洲推向一低碳的經濟就是波蘭,”他在聲明中說。
"It's a dark day for Europe's leading role in tackling climate change, but the UK together with its European colleagues will continue to make the economic case for tighter EU carbon targets so that we can make the most of the future green economy," he added.
“這是黑暗的一日,對歐洲的主導角色在應對氣候變化方面,但英國與它的歐洲同事一起將會繼續,去使經濟方面達成更緊的歐盟碳目標,因而我們能做出大部份未來為綠色經濟體,”他補充。
Ministers attending the talks had been discussing proposals to cut CO2 emissions by 40 percent compared to 1990 before 2030, by 60 percent by 2040 and by 80 percent by 2050. That would have entailed a 25 percent cut by 2020.
參加會談的部長一直在討論相對1990年及在2030年之前,減少二氧化碳排放量40%的建議、到2040年60%和到2050年80%,那將包括到2020年的25%削減。
But Polish environment minister Andrzej Kraszewski called for understanding of the economic situation of Europe's poorer states. "Analysis should be widely discussed and reflect the economic consequences for each member state," he told reporters.

The move suggests friction on climate issues will increase in Europe during the second half of this year, when Poland holds the rotating presidency of the EU.
