UK Emissions Fall


I've said in the past that, as much as I can wallow in the pessimistic side of the environmental debate sometimes, we should really celebrate the successes.

Which is why yesterday's announcement of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions falling by 8.6% is great news.

I'm not going to join Friends Of The Earth's moaning that there was only a fall in the pollution because of the recession.

What I'm going to focus on instead is the fact that it's possible. It can be done. And with a little bit more effort, 10% in 2010 - as 10:10 are asking for - is highly possible.
