||Soundbite by Fredrik Reinfeldt, (in ENGLISH): they in advance in this meeting they presented a carbon intensity target, which in their mind is ambitious; and we will need a lot of efforts to get in place, we want to analyze these figures, we want them to be more precise in what kind of measures they would put in, and how it will differ from the their business as usual pathway when in regards to emissions; it's very important that China is engaged in climate protection, because this is the worlds' biggest emitter of green house gas emissions; they are standing for a huge portion of the increase in green house as emissions; they have lot of resources now put into renewable energy to the growing of nuclear energy use, but we feel they need to do more, since we are very worried about the fact that we see still a rise in the global temperature.
