“If we are successful, it will be a green innovation. not just for Denmark but for everyone on earth. The most important lesson we’ve learned in recent years about handling major emergencies is that we must act immediately “she said.
Frederiksen said her government was now open to the implementation of a tax on carbon dioxide gas emissions after previously being opposed, but she did not elaborate on how the ambitious goal would be achieved.
