Climate Act under threat?
Many comments on the British government's energy policy have said it is part of an escalating threat to Britain's groundbreaking Climate Change Act - which a group of Tory MPs boo every time it is mentioned in Parliament. No surprise for OneWorld readers.
I reported in April that at a meeting in London "a couple of NGO representatives voiced concern about the security of the Climate Change Act."
I wrote: "There's nothing definite," one NGO activist at the London meeting told me (Chatham House rules means no-one is quotable by name) "but there's a feeling growing that by a small change in policy here and a little change there, and making it impossible to meet the targets in the Act, it might amount to the death of the Act by a thousand cuts."
