Ministers ‘misrepresented’ UK climate advisory body

The UK government has “misrepresented” the Climate Change Committee (CCC) by wrongly claiming it said we would need a quarter of our energy to come from fossil fuels by 2050, scientists have said. In order to justify signing off new oil and gas licences in the North Sea, ministers have said the country will still require a quarter of its energy to come from gas in 2050, the year the UK is supposed to meet net zero. The Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) says this figure comes from the CCC, the government’s statutory advisory body, which has strongly advised against licensing new fossil fuels. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/oct/06/ministers-misrepresented-uk-climate-advisory-body-say-scientists

                It is concerning that the UK government has misrepresented the advice from the Climate Change Committee, especially when it comes to such an important issue as reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. Accurate representation of scientific advice is crucial in developing effective policies to combat climate change.
