2. What are the objectives of the Climate Emergency?
The motion approved by the Parliament also takes place in response to the report of the British Committee on Climate Change, which proposes a series of radical measures for the United Kingdom, including those related to greenhouse gas emissions. Among them, the prohibition of the sale of vehicles of internal combustion after 2030, the installation of 7,500 wind energy turbines on the coasts and the massive planting of trees in an area of about 15 thousand square kilometers.
This committee has directly appealed to the British for the first time to introduce changes in their lifestyle, such as “the reduction of 20% consumption of meat and dairy products, the use of bicycles and public transport to go to work, the renunciation of long-haul flights or the regulation of thermostats below 19 degrees … the report fixes for the first time the goal of zero emissions for 2050, in contrast to the reduction of emissions by 80 % for the same date that existed until now “.
