So the UN's IPCC is stepping out into the fray once more, stating that:
"An 80% global reduction in CO2 emissions is needed to limit warming to 1.5°C",
and quick off the mark, our doughty civil servants have
"modelled a way to reach the target by 2042" including a "50% reduction in meat and dairy consumption, a 15% cut in air passenger levels compared with pre-pandemic levels, and the widespread acceptance of heat pumps in homes"
not to mention the ever popular Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, insect-burgers, and fluoridation schemes to keep us all owning nothing and happy as Larry.
And of course no mention that as the UK's emissions are already insignificant compared with the ever-growing emissions of India and China (to name but two), the whole exercise is completely pointless even on its own terms.
