A Low Carbon Economy
'.. as the world moves shakily into the economic recovery phase, I see investment in the green economy as a key to that general world recovery... Current economic difficulties should be a spur and not a hindrance to that effort... I see the current economic difficulties as a spur to getting this green economic revolution right.' (The Rt. Hon Alex Salmond MSP, First Minister addressing the Low Carbon Investment Conference 28 September.)
