    UK Climate Emergency Declaration Is Not Emergency Enough

    The U.K. Has Declared A Climate Emergency—But A New Report Advocates More Aggressive Action; A new report pushes for zero carbon emissions by 2050, more electric vehicles, and retrofitting urban buildings.

    Leah Dunlevy, May 8, 2019 (Pacific Standard)

    “…[The British Parliament passed an unprecedented declaration that there is] a ‘climate emergency’…[but] it is a non-binding motion…[Though] the government has to respond to the declaration, it isn't committed to any specific climate change policies…[In the wake of an unparalleled recent wave of climate activism, a new report] urges the government to commit to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050…[A]mid the protests, April set a new record for the number of times climate change was mentioned in the U.K. press…

    Across the U.K., 59 local councils have declared climate emergencies…These declarations have been followed by local steps to transition communities and economies to become carbon neutral…[The report calls for energy industry changes and encouragements to other sectors and industries] to accelerate improvements…The report also encourages individual consumers to walk or cycle more, fly less, consider buying electric cars, and eat less of environmentally damaging foods such as meat and dairy…[Protestors criticized the report and called for] a ‘serious attempt’ to reach zero carbon within 10 years…” click here for more
