The UK's focus on climate change is slammed by a political pundit, which claims that China's emissions are more than all other countries combined. The live BBC graph was shared by James Melville, a political commentator and a regular contributor to GB News, on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter. It comes as Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced yesterday that he would delay a series of key climate targets at a press conference.
He adds: s territorial emissions - those within our borders. The carbon footprint was nearly twice that of the United States's emissions. That is, when you include emissions generated abroad either to supply stuff we import or by things we do outside the UK. He goes on to say that includes international flights, imported fossil fuels and consumer goods. Even just at 1 percent for territorial emissions, we're still amongst the top emitting countries - number 15 in 2017 and 2018, he said. Rishi Sunak, a prominent politician, said yesterday he will push back a ban on selling petrol and diesel vehicles from 2030 to 2035, slow down plans to phase out gas boilers and reject calls to regulate efficiency for homeowners. He also said he would continue plans to expand oil and gas developments in Britain's North Sea and drill for fossil fuels that environmental groups opposed and that the ban on onshore wind will be lifted. The party's environmental policy has been split with outrage from the Tories. Lord Goldsmith, who quit as environment minister in June with a scathing attack on Mr Sunak's climate apathy, called for an immediate general election.
