UK government updates aviation CO2 forecasts to 2050 and analyses policy levers to achieve reductions

by Sara M. Langston with the blog faculty Source: Green Air Fri 26 Aug 2011 – We are anti-carbon, not anti-aviation, claims the UK government in a new report published by the Department for Transport (DfT) in response to a major study released in December 2009 by the government's climate change advisers, the Committee on Climate Change (CCC), on reducing UK aviation carbon emissions out to 2050.
