U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair dedicated more than $146 million toward the development of renewable energy sources yesterday, in an apparent appeal for the green vote in the upcoming election this May. In a speech to the World Wildlife Fund, Blair said, “We can only succeed if we make tackling climate change a commercial opportunity.” It was only the second time in four years that Blair has talked about renewable energy, and critics of the Labor Party were quick to dismiss the speech. Tories called it a “pre-election stunt,” while Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy said Blair’s government has “failed miserably where the environment is concerned.”
