This needs to be done right.So it won't be.

It seems that there is a proposal for the Government to set binding carbon targets. Read here.

These targets mean failure will require going to court. Now of course this would be good if it meant that these stupid idiots would end up paying fines with their own money on their own stupid legislation but what it really means is the Secretary of state for Useless Government will plead guilty and then write out a government cheque which of course the tax payer will pay. No different than the screw up DEFRA made over the farmers payments where we were fined £300M+.

What is it with these people. Can't they think anything through?

The only bit of good news on this is that people who up until now have been too thick to understand the implications of these things are now being hit in their pockets. They are now seeing changes that they don't like.

It's taken them long enough to wake up. Will their though process stay on track for long enough though with all the distractions such as terror trials and David Cameron's hair.

I don't really understand who has to meet these carbon targets - airlines?

The Government.

They will set targets, enforceable by law for the Government. Of course it will cover everything so will be passed down to the peasants. So, if we don't conform and the council or whatever does not force us to and it fails to meet it's targets then it will be taken to court and fined.

Example : 60% of all UK waste to be recycled. 5 year target. Go.

5 years from now. Less that 60% pay up £100M to the Chancellor or something.

Make the DEFRA cock up seem like small change as our guys will never set realistic targets for anything plus they won't have to pay the fine so who really cares.
