Climate Change

Asked to explain Jack Straw’s assertion today that the UK was leading by example on climate change by cutting carbon dioxide emissions when Margaret Beckett had announced yesterday that allowances for carbon dioxide emissions were being increased, the PMOS said that as he understood it, we would still be within the range as set out in our Kyoto targets. Mrs Beckett had been talking about a technical adjustment in her speech yesterday, rather than calling into question our commitment and our ability to meet the targets we had said that we would meet.

  1. Are our Government losing their marbles??

    The weather HAS changed already!! Never mind the Kyoto agreement we need to cut the emmissions MORE than what was agreed, we need to bring it down as much as possible NOW.

    While Governments focus on off-world development it seems that they have already given up on Earth as a home for our children’s children. Such an attitude is adolescent.. we need to be sustainable NOW.

  2. So, increasing carbon dioxide emissions isnt "calling into question our commitment and our ability to meet the targets we had said that we would meet" no wonder they seem to have trouble with intelligence at no.10……..
    Maybe because bush doesnt believe in cutting polution, blair thinks he had better follow !
