ABSTRACT
The article comments on the government's move of botching the country's drive to cut carbon emissions by allowing thousands of homes, offices, and factories to go on belching out carbon at a rate in Great Britain. The government has declared that buildings submitted for regulatory approval ahead of April 6, 2006, when the carbon-cutting regulations become law, will not need to meet that law as long as they start on site before the next year.
