FoE hits out at 'scandalous' decarbonisation target delay threat

Friends of the Earth has slammed potential decarbonisation target delays as 'scandalous'.
Reacting to reports that a commitment on a target to decarbonise the power sector may be delayed until after the General Election, Friends of the Earth's executive director Andy Atkins said: 'It would be scandalous if Ed Davey threw in the towel over energy decarbonisation - he mustn't do George Osborne's dirty work.

'Delaying decarbonisation targets until after the next election is like an alcoholic pledging to give up drinking - but not today. We need urgent action now to end our economy's addiction to dirty and increasingly expensive fossil fuels.

'If the Liberal Democrats fail to keep their promise to include power sector decarbonisation in the Energy Bill their credibility will be in tatters.

'MPs from all parties must fight hard to ensure the Energy Bill has a clear plan for meeting UK climate targets.'
