Lib-Dem's Pledge: UK Zero Carbon By 2050
The Lib Dems are pledging a Zero Carbon Britain if they get into power. A coalition between Lib Dems and Labour is far from unlikely so perhaps this has some real significance.
The Liberal Democrat leadership yesterday outlined a vision of a zero-carbon Britain by 2050 when it published the most ambitious blueprint for climate change reform ever produced by a mainstream political party. Citing extreme weather events such as the Australian drought, the destruction of New Orleans by a hurricane, warm winters in Canada, and Britain's summer floods, Sir Menzies Campbell insisted that climate change was finally moving up the political agenda worldwide. "This time it's different," he told a press conference in London.
