Laws are needed to get results in climate change processes.

Britain will pass a climate change bill containing carbon reduction goals, the first country to do so. This will take the matter out of the hands of politicians and leave it to a committee to set five year goals. There will be goals for different sectors like transport, power generation and manufacturing. The ultimate goal is to cut emissions by 80% from their 1990 levels by 2050. The first budget to 2022 will be published soon. Energy and planning bills with climate change ambitions will follow. The process of enforcement of these laws are not fully clear – what do you do with the lawbreakers?
