The event kicked off with leading Green MEP, Claude Turmes, launched a scathing attack on the commissioner for climate action, Connie Hedegaard, over the latest Commission plans for reducing carbon emissions and conserving energy.
Mr Turmes, who wrote the 2009 European Parliament report on energy policy, claims that the Commission’s new “Road Map” to 2050 omits wind energy because too many decision makers are listening to the nuclear and coal lobbies.
