Carbon emission reduction targets

Rossinisbird nails Council!

Rossinisbird in his post of last Wednesday does well to expose the feeble targets being set by South Tyneside Council in it's quest to achieve measurable reductions in it's carbon emissions targets. They plan to achieve a 5% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions over the next five years -whoopee!

I could just about manage to do that on my own by walking to work instead of driving.

Come on guys, even the Conservatives are aiming higher than this.


Rossinisbird - (we know who he is now!)

Thanks for the plug, Curly. The issue has been overtaken by a report released last Friday by the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of Manchester. The Government's planned cut of 60% of CO2 emissions by 2050 should be replaced with a target of 90% by 2050. Beyond 2010, the report says, annual cuts of 9% will be needed for the next 20 years.

South Tyneside Council really need to catch up.

A copy of the report can be found here.
