Largest climate emission falls in 40 years

While the recession has had an impact on businesses and individuals around the world, a forecast fall of 2.6% in global carbon emissions would appear to be as a direct consequence of the recession. A significant reduction in business levels around the world and less "spending money" for individuals would appear to have led to what many governments were seeking, a marked reduction in damage to the environment.

This report will come as no surprise to those who follow the environment and the carbon emissions pumped out round the world. In the boom times, carbon emissions continue to rise time after time after time despite promises by governments such as the US and the UK to abide by international agreements and cut back on their emissions. However, for those who are looking forward to reduced emissions in the future, the forecast turnaround in the UK and worldwide economies will no doubt put us back on to the positive trail again and carbon emissions are almost certain to rise in the future.

If there was a long-term reduction in carbon emissions, what excuse with the UK government and European authorities have to issue taxes on behalf of environment? That is a question which we will leave you to ponder.........
