Government advisers warn that global warming is exceeding Britain’s ability to respond.
The Government’s climate consultants welcomed the Daily Express’s eco-campaign yesterday, warning that global warming is overtaking Britain’s ability to cope.
The Government has failed to produce a “practical plan” to adapt to climate change, according to the Climate Change Committee. This could jeopardize Boris Johnson’s goal of achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050, when all greenhouse gas emissions must be eradicated or compensated by tree planting. “If we do not act now, it will be too late,” warned Baroness Brown, chairman of the CCC Adaptation Committee, during the launch of the 1,500-page study.
The research came out just two days after the G7 summit in Cornwall vowed to work together to combat climate change.

The CCC, on the other hand, praised the Daily Express’ Green Britain Needs You campaign for exposing government contradictions and working to provide greater room for wildlife.
