Update on Copenhagen
The outcome of the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference was disappointing, as acknowledged by the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change in his statement to the House on 5th January.
It is now crucial that we press ahead with action to meet our domestic targets and I am pleased Ed Miliband made reference in his speech to the need to act on the advice of the Committee on Climate Change in its report, Meeting Carbon Budgets - the need for a step change. The report makes a number of important recommendations, including highlighting the need for road pricing if we are to reduce our emissions from road transport in line with targets.
