Europe shouldn't talk about global warming..
It's own record is poor and it's emissions trading system doesn't work...
Brussels does not deserve European Union treaty powers to fight climate change because of its poor record on cutting carbon dioxide emissions, according to a report published today.
Research by Open Europe concludes that the EU's CO2 Emissions Trading System is centralised, bureaucratic and fails to deliver.
"Instead of obsessively trying to ram through the rejected EU constitution it should be sorting out its chronic failures on the environment," said Neil O'Brien, director of the think tank.
"Under the Emissions Trading System emissions have gone up, not down. The last thing we should do is reward a failing organisation by giving it even more power."
