one to watch?

Reported in todays Guardian….

A powerful new government climate change committee will meet today for the first time to decide how ministers will meet their commitment to cut carbon emissions by 60% by 2050, and whether the target needs to be strengthened in the face of worsening forecasts on climate change.

But is 60% by 2050 enough – the word from the science community is that it needs to be 80% – as Scotland and other are adopting. And if they do recommend a move to 80% that will affect all (ok most) Code targets and built environment targets set to date.

And Darlings forthcoming budget will be the greenest ever from Labour so I read.  It will be interesting to see what home improvement, new home and non domestic building  environmental targets and benefits are announced  – if any
