lcs_4a_thumbnail_dhxzqThe UK is writing carbon dioxide targets into law. But is the draft Climate Change Bill strong enough to ensure the UK plays a fair role in avoiding dangerous climate change?

We interview Environment Secretary, David Miliband, and get informed comment from Dr Alice Bows (Tyndall Centre) and Martyn Williams (senior parliamentary campaigner, Friends of the Earth).

  • Why is the government using a target that is based on outdated science?
  • Why does the Bill allow the UK to meet 50% of its targets by buying up emissions credits from abroad?
  • Why aren’t emissions from aviation and shipping included in the Bill?
