Governor Jim Doyle heading to Copenhagen

Party! Party! Party!

Oh heck, why else would he be going? It certainly can’t be that Wisconsin is a world leader in energy (fill-in-the-blank.)

Hey, it’s only your money.

The press release:

Gov. Doyle: To join delegation in Copenhagen

Contact: Laura Smith, Office of the Governor, 608-261-2162

MADISON – Governor Jim Doyle announced today that he is joining a delegation of Governors and Premiers from around the world at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark from December 14-18, 2009. Governor Doyle will showcase Wisconsin as a leader in clean-energy jobs, renewable energy, energy efficiency, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

“With a global focus on climate change, Wisconsin is well positioned to become a worldwide leader in a clean energy economy,” Governor Doyle said. “We have the hardest workers and high end manufacturers, the brightest researchers and some of the best natural resources in the world. By advancing renewable fuels and alternative energy, we can create jobs in Wisconsin and take on the pressing challenge of climate change.”

At the conference, Governor Doyle will work with business, governmental and environmental leaders from around the world to advocate for an agreement that recognizes the important role of states like Wisconsin in a global solution to climate change. The Governor will also meet with business leaders to discuss opportunities for green companies to expand their operations and create jobs in Wisconsin.

Other delegation leaders joining the Governor in Copenhagen include California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Washington Governor Chris Gregoire, Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger, Quebec Premier Jean Charest, South Australia Premier Mike Rann, and Prince Albert II of Monaco.

Since taking office, Governor Doyle has had an aggressive agenda to position Wisconsin as a leader in clean-energy jobs and green energy. As a result, Wisconsin has adopted renewable portfolio standards, invested in green job creation, led the advancement of research in cellulosic ethanol and biomass, and made great strides to increase energy efficiency in homes, businesses and government buildings.

  1. Randy in Richmond says:

    This conference is quickly losing it’s heat. Call it what you will but ‘climategate’ has sucked the energy right out of anything meaningful happening at ‘Nopenhagen’. Once it was revealed that the famous ‘hockey stick’ temperature graph should have shown the stick pointing down instead of up, much of the “science” associated with global warming melted into the Arctic Ocean.

    Another example that the religion of global warming has taken a big hit–Al Gore has abruptly cancelled a $1200 a plate meet and greet on Dec. 16th in Copenhagen that will affect 3,000 ticketholders. Do the math. If you don’t think the recently exposed emails are the direct cause of this you’ve been watching only the MSM.

    This conference will be akin to a WWE match, lots and lots of sizzle but no bacon.

  2. That’s a whole new post! I want to know more about the cancelled Gore meet and greet.
