Responding to the publication today of a new report by the UK Committee on Climate Change (UK CCC) Jim Densham from Stop Climate Chaos Scotland (SCCS) said: “We welcome the UK Climate Change Committee’s clear advice that Scotland must reduce its carbon emissions by 61 per cent by 2030. However, the Committee’s report spells out that if we are to hit these new targets we will need to see strong action and new policies from the Scottish Government.
“The advice from the UK CCC describes a rapid transition away from fossil fuels towards a clean, renewable energy future. This means by 2030 electric cars need to be the vehicle of choice, renewable heat must be common place across our buildings and all our homes energy efficient. This is a massive opportunity to not only cut emissions but also deliver new jobs in sectors like home insulation and renewable energy across Scotland, improve public health, create investment in new industry and help tackle fuel poverty.
“This is a powerful reminder that all political parties need to step up action on climate change and commit to policies in line with the Climate Change Agreement all Scottish party leaders signed up to last year.”
