Item #d93jul72

A proposed program for controlling CO2 emissions in the U.K. was released recently by the Department of Environment. (See Reports.) The plan was the focus of a May 7 public conference, that followed a series of workshops and concluded the consultative process on the plan. A firm program plan is to be published by the end of this year.

At the meeting, Environment Secretary Michael Howard said that measures already in place will take the U.K. two-thirds of the way to its CO2 reduction goal, and that the government favors market-based approaches to reducing emissions. The organization Friends of the Earth released its own report at the meeting, which says the government's plan misses vital opportunities for CO2 reductions. (See Reports.)
