ENDS (Environmental Data Services);Aug2009, Issue 415, p64
The article focuses on greenhouse gas emissions in Great Britain. Under the Climate Change Act, greenhouse gas emission reduction will have to increase in the next few years to meet five-year carbon budgets. The Low Carbon Transition Plan enables emissions to drop by 18% between 2008 and 2020, causing a 34% reduction on 1990.
