"Which country is doing the most to reduce its carbon emissions? Common guesses include China, which is spending trillions to clean up transit, power plants, and factories. Or Germany, which has gone all-in on renewable energy. But the best answer might be the United Kingdom.
China’s emissions are still rising, and Germany’s are down 23 percent since 1990. Meanwhile, Britain has driven down its emissions by 43 percent since 1990, according to provisional data released Thursday."




"So, has the U.K. simply moved its emissions to China by closing down the Sheffield steel plants and buying imported steel? Not quite — its overall emissions based on import consumption are down as well."

The UK is added to the list of countries demonstrating that reducing carbon emissions does not kill that countries economy and is not bad for business.

I had seen this news a long time ago, and I think it is a sensational idea that should be transferred to other countries. Greetings.

Thanks for the info Proggy. Maybe if people see more of this type of news they will realize that cutting carbon emissions can actually be good for the economy and business.
