Re: Lost among the clutter (bobbapink)
Didn't need to read the that part as I heard the tape of the full interview as well as a subsequent interview on the radio.
But did you, perhaps, miss the following on the linked page?
"BP today announced that it has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by over nine million tonnes eight years ahead of target, and said it will peg net future emissions at this new, lower level despite plans to grow its oil and gas production by 5.5 per cent a year.
Chief executive Lord Browne said that BP's pledge, made four years ago, to cut emissions from its own operations by ten per cent from 1990 levels by 2010 had already been achieved - and at no net cost to the company."
Now the above is PAST TENSE ... not FUTURE TENSE. That which was achieved by BP was done solely by BP without digging into any miserly pockets.
