Good news on UK emissions



The UK has fallen well behind other European countries with attempts to cut greenhouse gas emissions from energy consumption despite topping the table until 1999, according to a new report from the Office of National Statistics.

The new analysis shows the UK has slumped from heading the European Union of 27 nations to now being in 23rd position.

And the UK is also fast falling behind other EU countries with its share of renewable energy.

Sounds like good news to me. Get rid of feed-in tariffs for wind and solar and that alone may help us climb to the bottom of the table.

All be over in a few months anyway.

James - yes, interesting times as they say, although I'd rather they were a tad less interesting.
