You couldn't make it up #94

The Scottish government failed to meet its climate change targets in 2010, according the latest official figures. They showed greenhouse gas emissions rose by 1.9% on 2009 figures, after taking emissions trading into account.

The government is attempting to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 42% by 2020. Scottish Energy Minister Mr Stevenson said "Scotland faced its coldest winter temperatures in almost a century - and quite rightly people across Scotland needed to heat their homes to keep warm and safe".
