ABSTRACT
The article presents an argument by the Confederation of British Industry regarding climate change and green movement. It says that economic crisis is not a reason for inaction on climate change. If carbon dioxide emissions are to be cut, and endangered species such as polar bears to be protected, Great Britain must deliver the right framework for firms to invest in green technology.
