The UK Low Carbon Transition Plan launched

Ed Miliband’s video announcement of the UK Low Carbon Transition Plan.

The Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) launched the UK Low Carbon Transition Plan today (15/7/09). The plan plots out how the UK will meet the cut in emissions set out in the budget of 34% on 1990 levels by 2020. Full details are on the DECC website.

    To everyone on this (and other lists)…

    The UK Low Carbon Transition Plan and, as various commentators have said, it has a lot of potential and certainly some important bits.

    We can debate and campaign around the missing bits…

    However I would suggest that the media coverage last weekend and at present is by no means entirely favourable.

    This could get tram-lined into discussion about how it will all be too expensive and provide perfect fodder for the climate deniers / sceptics / creationists or for a Daily Express style negative campaign.

    I would therefore urge anyone with fifteen minutes to spare to knock off an email or letter to your local press / radio / media, saying that you’re pleased this has happened, (and maybe that it should have been done years ago) and that you’ll be looking forward to saving energy and money through better insulation, smart meters, micro-gen, community-scale work etc. Highlight the opportunities that this offers your town or community and urge people and the press to make things happen locally.

    The knockers and those against renewables will certainly be writing! Don’t give them a free run. Let’s create some positive media!

    If you agree, please pass the idea on and PLEASE drop a note to your media!
