UK accused of hypocrisy over plans to limit enforcement of EU climate goals | EurActiv

British lobbying to reduce monitoring of EU countries’ action on climate change has sparked outrage among MEPs and environmentalists. EU states agreed last October to cut their carbon emissions 40% by 2030, but a UK plan co-authored with the Czech Republic proposes that countries’ emissions cuts should only be overseen with a ‘light touch’ regime with a diminished role for Brussels. The unpublished paper places equal emphasis on business competitiveness and greenhouse gas reductions. It also calls for nuclear power and experimental carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies to be given the same status as renewable sources, such as wind and solar power, and energy efficiency.
