Government is missing key climate, energy and transport targets

Gordon Brown's actions do not match his words of promise. The UK Govt will fail to meet its climate change target because of continued reliance on coal and gas power stations, according to Cambridge Econometrics. It will also miss by a 'wide margin' its target for developing renewable energy, according to the UK Energy and Environment Report. The UK Energy Research Centre finds that the UK lags behind other countries in terms of sustainable travel like walking, cycling, car sharing. These things are hardly unconnected are they!!

    I wonder why Bristol City Council and other developers (e.g. SquarePeg) aren't building Ecohomes as promoted by the Create Centre? Oh silly me, it's just another token jesture for what could be achieved!
