Climate Change

Asked for further clarification on the Prime Minister’s words this morning at the Liaison Committee about travel costs, the PMOS replied that what the Prime Minister was saying was that the proposal to him was that in effect, if the price of tickets was raised, emissions would be cut. What the Prime Minister was saying was that ticket costs would have to be raised very substantially to have an impact. All of this came down to a question about how the right technology could be developed to tackle the problem. The Prime Minister’s belief was that first of all, the major economies had to be engaged, the US, India and China, but also, the need to develop technology which produced less emissions had to be engaged.
