WARSAW, Poland (March 8, 2013)--Hoping to win over EU critics of Poland's recent stance on climate change, the country’s environment minister says the coal-powered nation will make every effort to pave the way for a lasting deal in 2015 when it hosts a United Nations global warming conference in the fall.
Last year, Poland vetoed the EU's road map for emissions reductions beyond 2020, drawing sharp criticism from environmental groups and EU officials.
Poland relies on coal for more than 90 percent of its electricity, but Environment Minister Marcin Korolec told The Associated Press Friday the country has been at the forefront of climate change, reducing carbon emissions by 30 percent in recent years.
A recent U.N. climate conference agreed to adopt a new global climate pact by 2015 to modify the Kyoto Protocol.
