Tyndall Center: UK Gov't Carbon Targets Too Weak

The Tyndall Center says that the UK gov't plan to reduce CO2 emissions is too weak to prevent dangerous climate change.

"Ministers are poised to introduce strict limits on UK carbon pollution when they announce Britain's first carbon budget next month. But experts from the Tyndall Centre for Climate ChangeResearch warn today that official advice used to set the budget is "naïvely optimistic" and will not stop dangerous climate change.

"It comes after scientists at a global warming conference in Copenhagen last week warned that emissions are rising faster than expected, and that climate change could strike harder and faster than predicted.

"If we are to play our part in avoiding dangerous climate change, the government must commit the UK to cutting its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 42 per cent by 2020 without buying pollution 'offsets' from abroad.
