"What europe must understand is that its real leadership ambition should concentrate on being the first to create a low carbon economy. the real breakthrough for climate policy will not come through diplomacy. Rather, the breakthrough will come as countries learn to understand that saving the climate will help save their economies and safeguard their security."

Reinhard Bütikofer, MEP and Vice Chairman of the Group of the Greens/European Free Alliance, writes on refocusing Europe’s leadership role in Climate Change and upcoming challenges.
