Climate change: UK government to commit to 2050 target

Climate change: UK government to commit to 2050 target

Greenhouse gas emissions in the UK will be cut to almost zero by 2050, under the terms of a new government plan to tackle climate change.

Prime Minister Theresa May said there was a “moral duty to leave this world in a better condition than what we inherited”. Cutting emissions would benefit public health and cut NHS costs, she said.

Britain is the first major nation to propose this target – and it has been widely praised by green groups. But some say the phase-out is too late to protect the climate, and others fear that the task is impossible.

The UK already has a 2050 target – to reduce emissions by 80%. That was agreed by MPs under the Climate Change Act in 2008, but will now be amended to the new, much tougher, goal. The actual terminology used by the government is “net zero” greenhouse gases by 2050.

That means emissions from homes, transport, farming and industry will have to be avoided completely or – in the most difficult examples – offset by planting trees or sucking CO2 out of the atmosphere.

Testimonials

‘We are very pleased with our solar panel installation and by looking at the inverter I know we are already making large savings on our costs. The Redmile team were a pleasure to work with and kept us informed of work they were doing and explained everything to me including assisting in completion of the paperwork. They kept disruption to a minimum and were ever so tidy. I would recommend them to anyone else thinking of having solar panels installed and I am now thinking of using them to install panels on my own property’
