UK MAY DITCH ITS CO2 REDUCTION TARGETS

This piece looks at the remarks made by Lord Deben when asked if the UK would go it alone if other developed nations don't match the UK's targets. His announcement, probably made through gritted teeth, is what any sane person would have to admit. The alternative, to carry on unilaterally, is just insane - though for a while that is what we will do (and indeed have been doing). What they will try to pretend is that others are continuing to match the UK, even though it seems clear that they are not and will not. 

Here is the true situation of what is happening in the real world where over 1200 coal-fired power plants are in the pipeline. So whatever the UK, or for that matter the EU, do, the world's emissions are only heading one way - up!
