The article examines the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs' (DEFRA) annual progress report on the climate change program in Great Britain. The report reveals that carbon emissions have fallen by two percent in 2007 compared to 2006 due to a switch from coal to natural gas for electricity generation combined with lower consumption by households and industry. It also provides that, by 2020, carbon emission might be at around 15.5 percent below 1990 levels.
