The BEIS said carbon emissions in the United Kingdom have fallen and national income has risen faster and further than any other nation in the G7 since 1990.

Responding to the announcement, RenewableUK's chief executive, Hugh McNeal said "This government has unveiled an ambitious plan which sets us firmly on a course to deliver the modern, clean energy system which the United Kingdom needs".

The announcements were made in the Clean Growth Strategy, a wide-ranging plan headed by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy created to reduce the UK's carbon emissions.

Low-carbon innovation is at the heart of the government's approach, climate change and industry minister Claire Perry said in a written statement to parliament. It's as big a change as the move from the age of steam to the age of oil and Britain is showing the way.

Leeds City Council Councillor Richard Lewis heralded the move as the start of a "revolution in bus travel". I would urge everyone who uses Oxford city centre to take part in the consultation.


Managing materials at end of life - by targeting environmental impacts.

Work towards the agreement began in 2013, when the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) commissioned studies on eight energy intensive industry sectors with the objective to develop long-term decarbonisation and energy efficiency roadmaps through to 2050. The Government has given a clear message on electric vehicles and green finance.

"The Action Plan sets out how Government and energy intensive industries will collaborate to support the sectors to decarbonise and improve their energy efficiency while maintaining competitiveness, and forms a crucial part of our Clean Growth Strategy that has been published today to set out how the United Kingdom will meet its Carbon Budgets".

The auction had also resulted in securing more than 3GW of renewable electricity to power up to 3.6 million homes.

Under the government's Clean Growth strategy and roadmap to 2050, the food sector aims to deliver a 55% reduction in emissions by 2025, as well as a longer-term ambition to cut Carbon dioxide by 80% by 2050.

Ambition for the United Kingdom to be zero avoidable waste economy by 2050.

"We welcome the government's ambition to divert all food waste from landfill by 2030 and to support local authorities in rolling out separate food waste collections. The support and funding for innovation, including new technological solutions to manage long term landfill emissions, is also highly welcome". Morton added that following the strategy's targets, tangible support must be provided for mandatory separate food waste collections in England and the "urgent tabling of legislation on the Renewable Heat Incentive to renew support for biomethane-to-grid".

Jane Fonda on Harvey Weinstein: 'I'm ashamed that I didn't say anything'
When pressed by Amanpour, Fonda said this sort of thing also happened to her in the past-though never perpetrated by Weinstein. Fonda, 79, said that her friend and fellow actor, Rosanna Arquette , had recounted a troubling experience with Weinstein.
