FoE slams Whitehall's 'ditched decarb target'

Reacting to the recent Government announcement that there will be no decarbonisation target until at least after the next election, Friends of the Earth's Executive Director Andy Atkins said: 'The Coalition has caved in to Osborne's reckless dash for gas and banged the final nail in the coffin of Cameron's pledge to lead the greenest Government ever.
'This decision motivated by outdated ideology will help keep the nation hooked on increasingly expensive gas, drive away green jobs and investment and jeopardise UK climate goals.

'But the fight is far from over - there's huge public and business support for power sector decarbonisation. Politicians from all parties must fight in Parliament against Osborne's fossil-fuel addiction.'
