UK PM: “We can make Britain a global showcase for green innovation.”

David Cameron, launching the Green Deal: “Make no mistake we are in a global race and the countries that succeed in that race, the economies in Europe that will prosper, are those that are the greenest and the most energy efficient.” “….it is the countries that prioritise green energy that will secure the biggest share of jobs and growth in a global low carbon sector set to be worth $4tr by 2015. So to those who say we just can’t afford to prioritise green energy right now, my view is we can’t afford not to. ….Already today Britain is one of the best places for green energy, green investment, and crucially for green jobs anywhere in the world. …our reformed feed-in tariff is helping drive the growth of a vibrant and entrepreneurial decentralised energy sector, providing communities and business with a range of innovative clean technologies. ….Together we can make Britain a global showcase for green innovation and energy efficiency.”
JL: I think the key word in the last sentence is “can.”
