Legally binding climate targets

\”In the probable event that the \’legally binding targets\’ are not met, who penalises whom and how?\”
This is the question I posed on 17th June 2010 at a seminar for the Imperial [College] Centre for Energy Policy and Technology (ICEPT) and the Energy Futures Lab. given by Lord Stern and Will Cavendish.
Lord Stern\’s answer: \”It\’s just words\”.
