CLIMATE CHANGE BUREAUCRACY HITTING UK BUSINESS

This report explains how government red tape on carbon reduction laws is putting onerous new burdens on UK businesses. No doubt this will grow as the tentacles spread down from larger firms to smaller ones, all required to file detailed reports of their carbon emissions. It is this sort of thing that will inevitably lead to higher costs for UK businesses which will be passed on to the consumer in higher prices. More firms will either go out of business or re-locate abroard in less onerous countries. All this will cost jobs, rise prices, and all for nothing, as China and India power away at our expense.

Another report here, as the first report is behind a paywall.

The report is hidden behind a subscription wall.
Is there anywhere else it can be seen?

Sorry about that. I have added a second link.
