Climate Committee’s Post-Paris Advice to Govt “Desperately Disappointing”, says Friends of the Earth


Reacting to new advice to the government today from the Committee on Climate Change on the implications of the Paris Agreement for the UK’s fifth carbon budget, Friends of the Earth’s CEO Craig Bennett said “This is desperately disappointing advice from the government’s climate advisor.

“Last month the international community agreed to ‘pursue efforts’ to keep global temperature rises to 1.5C – the Committee on Climate Change should have provided comprehensive advice and guidance on what measures the UK needs to take to help achieve this.

“The positivity and back slapping of Paris will fade very soon, unless our official advisory and regulatory bodies realise what governments signed up to in December – and work out what it means for action back home.”
