Tony Blair continues to go for the green in an attempt to salvage his legacy:

Tony Blair will next week complete a British U-turn over green energy and support an ambitious 20 per cent mandatory target for renewable power as a share of European generation capacity.

The British prime minister has overruled his industry minister and will argue at an EU summit that Europe needs binding targets for renewables to show it is serious in fighting climate change.

Of course, Europe could show it’s serious by actually meeting some of the green targets it’s previously set. But this might be nice too.
