Alok Sharma challenges Rishi Sunak: show us how UK can meet green pledges

Alok Sharma, the former Tory cabinet minister who chaired the landmark Cop26 UN summit in Glasgow, has warned Rishi Sunak that he will now have to find other ways to cut emissions if the UK is to meet its international climate obligations, following last weekโ€™s dramatic U-turns on green policy. In his first comments since Sunakโ€™s announcement on Wednesday, Sharma told the Observer that โ€œrolling back on certain policies will mean we need to find emissions reductions elsewhere, if we are to meet our legally binding near term carbon budgets and our internationally committed 2030 emissions reduction targetโ€. https://getsnap.link/9fXyCTiXqJf

              Alok Sharma's challenge to Rishi Sunak underscores the critical nature of staying committed to green pledges and climate obligations. The recent U-turns on green policy require us to find alternative ways to reduce emissions if we are to meet our carbon budgets and international 2030 emissions reduction targets. This call for consistency and determination in climate action is essential to fulfill our environmental responsibilities. ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿค #ClimateAction

                Alok Sharma was the Energy and Industrial Strategy President for COP 26, so he's clearly sure of what he's saying.

                      Rishi Sunak's response to Alok Sharma's challenge will be closely watched, as it will determine the government's commitment to meeting its green pledges.

                            Rishi Sunak should borrow a leaf of advice from Alok Sharma. His leadership and knowledge was emulatable on cop 26

                              Rishi has really been off. He should be called out.
