Review? Could? Do these words indicate an attempt to wriggle out of this carbon cut nonsense? Apparently not. The review will look at whether to up it to 80 percent. That’s a lot of cut.
Here’s what our Hilary said:
“The Climate Change Bill is groundbreaking legislation, and will provide the foundations for building a low carbon Britain. We need it to be as strong as possible.
“The scientific evidence has moved rapidly, and as part of a new global climate deal, developed countries may have to cut their emissions by as much as 80 per cent by 2050. That’s why we announced a review of the UK target last year.
“This review will now be a statutory duty, and I’ve asked the Committee to provide their advice on both the 2050 target and on the first three carbon budgets by 1 December this year.”
