10:10 Climate Action response to 2018 UK greenhouse gas emissions

Max Wakefield, Director at 10:10 Climate Action, said,

The good news is that UK emissions are falling. The bad news is they’re slowing down, just when we need to see them speeding up. The biggest factor in recent reductions has been the drastic reduction in coal fired power - but you can only kill coal once. To get to grips with the climate crisis the government must next tackle big challenges, like making our homes and workplaces efficient, affordable and zero carbon within the next two decades.
