About this deal

Alternatively, Britain will have to commit an economic suicide and all its energy hungry industries will have to be abandoned.

Just as important, by 2009 it was becoming increasingly clear that it would not be possible to make even the gradual reductions that policy makers demanded. This approach can also help to guarantee food and nutrition security and sovereignty, and conserve biodiversity.We have arrived at the painful realisation that the idea of net zero has licensed a recklessly cavalier “burn now, pay later” approach which has seen carbon emissions continue to soar.

I would advise anyone who reads this book also look for many other books which argue against the alarmist "CO2-induced catastrophe" legend.You're probably familiar with the argument, made repeatedly by scientists, campaigners, and countries most vulnerable to climate breakdown, that a 2050 target is much too late. By putting the burden for carbon sequestration onto land and tree plantations in global South countries – which have done little to cause the climate crisis – most “net zero” climate targets are effectively driving a form of carbon colonialism. Endless rows of such fast growing monoculture trees or other bioenergy crops harvested at frequent intervals devastate biodiversity.
