Pm clarifies climate change stance

The government is putting the finishing touches on what it calls the world’s first carbon pricing plan, it was announced today. This would see the price of electricity rise from around $10.70 a tonne per year to $25 by 2020. It will be introduced through the Renewable Energy Target (RET) and will be announced over the summer.

It is also aiming to make the most of existing wind farms by ensuring that they produce around 60 per cent of demand, although the RET is only a small part of the solution. It says renewable energy could generate up to 80 per cent of power by 2030 if it is allowed to grow at its pace and then continues to deliver.

Energy secretary Ian Duncan Smith told MPs that the government would also set a target to achieve renewable energy penetration of at least 60 per cent by 2020.

Mr Duncan Smith said: “A carbon price will be introduced this year and by 2020. This will help us tackle climate change and is designed to안산안마 안산출장안마 help deliver climate change as quickly as possible.”

But she added: “We will also need to be more transparent about what is being proposed so that we do not undermine the process and risk overstepping this.”

‘An incredibly important step in the right direction’

Energy minister Simon Hart said he had “narrowed the options down significantly and it has been an incredibly important step in the right direction.

“The government has gone out of its way to ensure we put in place a plan with the resources and support to deliver what we said we were going to do.”

The Prime Minister has previously indicated his desire to use more direct control of energy from his government’s energy policy portfolio to make the case for the policy.

However, the carbon price plan will face considerable debate and some sceptics may try to stop it being delivered through direct action rather than through the RET – a블랙 잭 view they take to this day.

Shadow energy minister Emily Thornberry also told the BBC’s Good Morning Britain programme today: “It’s the sort of thing where we can do a bit more transparency and just go through the whole proposal.

“In the run-up to the COP3 conference, they released all the details of it, which is just fantasti
