Labour Climate Change Hypocrisy

In his conference speech just three weeks ago, Gordon Brown said:
And every day we stall on a climate change deal, the people of the world are denied the chance to protect their world.
So given that there is no time to lose to stop catastrophic global warming, you'd have thought Labour would be right behind the 10:10 campaign to cut carbon emissions by 10% in 2010?

Well, yesterday the Lib Dems brought a motion asking the government to back the 10:10 campaign. Here's how they voted:

Con0 13871.9%
DUP1 455.6%
Ind0 466.7%
Lab296 (+2 tell) 1288.8%
LDem0 57 (+2 tell)93.7%
PC0 3100.0%
SDLP0 133.3%
SNP0 685.7%
Total:297 22583.2%

So that would be a resounding 'no' from Labour then. All words, no action.
