The article discusses a report on the national climate plan of Denmark, released by international consultancy Poyry. According to the report, the country risks exceeding its greenhouse gas limits by as much as 35 million tonnes if steps are not taken to plug holes in the national strategy to reduce emissions. The Poyry report concluded that it may be too late for Denmark to meet its obligations under the Kyoto Protocol.
