Current British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak addressed the nation yesterday (Wednesday 20th September), unveiling a series of policy relaxations concerning greenhouse gas emissions. The UK has now pushed back new ice car ban to 2035, this marks a five-year extension from the initial target set for 2030 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The 2030 target was initially introduced in November 2020, forming a critical aspect of then-Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s vision for a “green revolution.” Despite reaffirmations from senior minister Michael Gove as recently as July, the British government has now departed from their ambitious timeline. Whilst climate advocates are concerned about the policy change the majority of the public appear to be in favour of the changes at least for now.
