Today Gates and the announced a project on climate adaptation. I have a critique that is referenced briefly here: "The call for adaptation only makes sense when it comes from institutions that are mitigating as aggressively as possible.”

According to the 2008 Climate Change Act constrains them to only respond to requests made directly by the Minister. Not sure what would happen if the devolved administrations requested analysis with different boundaries. Chris Stark may be able to clarify?

This should be alarming to everyone - our Government is not only ignoring the calls to tighten efforts to combat climate change. Not only ignoring it, but frankly deriding the notion, while playing fast and loose with their 'data'. We don't have time to ignore this.

Essential to note, as emphasises, the UK’s existing commitments are not for 2°C, but only an 80% cut by 2050 & that even this includes future ‘negative emissions’. 2°C (with equity & no NETs)is zero-CO2 energy by 2035-40, i.e. system change far beyond step change.

No, we inherit a burden to find ways to emit less. Tough in today’s America, though. Crap trains for one!

May want to appear green ( and all that), but it is clear they do not wish to actually do anything anytime soon. In the wake of the latest report, this fraudulent and damaging approach is not good enough! An issue more urgent by the day, sidelined again!

Here's 's scathing take on why excluding a review of emissions cuts up to 2032 is such a big deal

Did you know the Sottish Government co-signed a disingenuous letter from UK and devolved climate ministers to this week that one of UK's leading climate scientists described as embracing a "Trumpian view of science"?

Worth a read...……..my initial happiness that Welsh Government was part of the request for CCC analysis has been softened by Kevin's analysis of the conditions set for the analysis.

It seems Claire Perry's recent instruction to has important scope limitations. They are only asked to comment on what the UK needs to do *after* 2032 - far too late given IPCC call for urgent action in next 10 years. UK needs action on onshore wind, fracking & EVs now.

As clearly evidenced in & excellent Merchants of Doubt analysis, fossil fuel executives have repeatedly undermined political action on climate change. But I & others in the 20% whose activities are responsible for 70% of CO2 don't get away scot free.

... that’s the ten year period the UK’s climate Minister has explicitly removed from the remit she’s given I look forward to hearing the roar of disproval from UK climate academics, NGOs & concerned policy makers over this betrayal ...

The one thing we can do is EXPOSE the duplicity and the criminal betrayal of our children. The legal process can cast a powerful spotlight on illegality ... irrespective of the outcome from a sometimes tame judiciary.

Your idea to constitute an International Climate Crimes Tribunal, based on the Russell Tribunal, is a good one, especially given the recent court success in The Netherlands. A look at the members of the Russell Tribunal, , shows the possible scope today.

this fairy tale performance. Include emissions from aviation and shipping and those associated with our import and exports, and the carbon footprint for UK plc. has barely changed since 1990."

Will anyone get the chance to ask to clarify the intent on carbon budgets to 2032 being out of scope when she speaks shortly Leaders Summit? Great opportunity to clear this up

I wish the voice of the medical profession was more prominent in this debate. Pollution and climate change are very much intertwined with health.
