By the year 2050 will be the United Kingdom, volstrelkt klimaatneutraa it. There is a plan to afscheidnemend prime minister, Theresa May..

It’s an ambitious plan, it is a refinement of the Climate Change Act (2008), which showed that the emissions in 2050, eighty-five percent must be to reduce, in comparison with the 1990 level. The new goal is to ensure that the country, in 2050 it will be completely climate-neutral. Each of the resulting CO2 emissions must be compensated for.

Theresa May seems determined to make her term as prime minister with a positive note to close it. After making a speech at kinderslavernij Tuesday, it looked like the climate, its a cut issue.

May want to, for example, from the year 2040, no new petrol and diesel cars will be sold.

During the Industrial Revolution, leading the world in innovation”, said May be in The Cards. “Now, we are hearing the world will be a cleaner, greener way to grow. Standing on the sidelines is not an option.’ According to figures from the International energy agency reduced the emission of carbon dioxide into the UK for the past five years.

The United Kingdom was the first country in the G7 group of leading industrial states, such as the United States of america, Canada, australia, Japan, France, italy, Germany, and Italy, and that is completely carbon-neutral means. Countries like Finland and Norway did, however, have previously made similar promises.

All the way from their own movement May not be the idea. At the end of may and have applied for hundreds of Uk companies and lobby groups are exactly the same, in an open letter addressed to May. The government is actually for the previous month is published, the advice from the independent Committee on Climate change (CCC).

How much of this is ambitiueuze plan is going to cost (and to whom the account is given), it is still not clear. But the secretary of the treasury, Philip Hammond, warned last week that the cost of the CREDIT proposal is to be able to reach up to 1,000 billion-pound (about 1.125 billion us dollars).

Koolstofkrediet

The Uk branch of Greenpeace, welcomed the plans, but had her doubts about that, one of the issues to allow the use of ‘carbon credits’ to meet the deadline. Carbon credits, also called emission allowances, called, the life relied upon in the Kyoto protocol of 1997. One koolstofkrediet represents one tonne of CO2 into the atmosphere. They can buy units, which allows tons of carbon dioxide are allowed to emit.

However, companies that have allowances to spare – because they produce lower greenhouse gas emissions, and therefore there is less need to – they should also sell it. This is done with the countries that are in the klimaatnormen’t get it, and, therefore, carbon credits have. Those who want to emit have to pay for it, that was it, basically.

Trading in international carbon credits, there is also provided in the British plan. According to Greenpeace , The Guardian would be that the expense of shifting to the developing world’.
