SCCS writes to First Minister about climate change concerns

Friday 20th July 2012

Stop Climate Chaos Scotland has today written to the First Minister, Alex Salmond MSP, to highlight concerns about Scotland’s action on climate change.

This follows the publication of data earlier this week that shows that the first legally-binding emissions reduction target set under the Scottish Climate Change Act has not been met. Indeed, the latest data shows that Scotland’s emissions increased rather than decreased.

Scottish Government fails first climate test

Serious concerns raised as emission target is missed

Tuesday 17th July 2012

The Scottish Government’s failure to meet the first target set by the Climate Change Act marks an extremely worrying start to the implementation of this legislation. Today’s announcement that Scotland emitted more greenhouse gases in 2010 than the previous year, means ambition has not been matched by action.

The figures for 2010 were released today and show that Scotland’s greenhouse gas emissions increased by nearly 2% from 2009.

Scotland at a crossroads on climate action

Monday 25th June 2012

On the third anniversary of the Scottish Climate Change Act today (Sun) Stop Climate Chaos Scotland (SCCS) is warning Scotland's progress towards meeting our world leading climate targets is at a crucial crossroads. [1]
