European Enviros on the Run: The Bulgarian edition

I've posted numerous times here at OLS about the increasing rejection of the green agenda across Europe, particularly in Eastern Europe (see here and here.).  Today the Global Warming Policy Foundation reports that Bulgaria is shifting its energy emphasis towards re-industrialization and with it, a major rejection of EU carbon-emission targets:
Bulgaria will not to approve the proposal for a 40%-reduction in [EU] greenhouse gas emissions. Minister of Economy and Energy Dragomir Stoynev, who is paying today a visit to the city of Sliven, made the comment, Radio FOCUS – Sliven reported.

In his opinion, this would significantly affect the economy in a negative way as it would mean that factories will have to be moved out of EU member states and the government was working to achieve a re-industrialisation of the country.
