U.K. COMPLETES PLAN


Item #d93oct114

in August, British environment minister John Gummer announced the last of a set of measures intended to reduce U.K. carbon dioxide emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2000. (See Global Climate Change Digest, p. 111, July-Aug. 1993) Among them are dissemination of energy efficiency information, reduction of transportation emissions, and increasing the use of combined heat and power (cogeneration). The announcement came a few days after Britain's Conservative government took a beating in a local election, in large part because voters rejected a value-added tax on domestic heating fuel that was announced earlier this year as an emission reduction mechanism. (See "British Voters Force Rethink of Global Warming Strategy," Nature, p. 472, Aug. 5 1993; Energy, Econ. & Clim. Change, p. 9, Aug. 1993)
