    Rishi Sunak has decided, or has been advised that the public don't want to fund Net Zero policies in their current form. So the PM is to tinker with the details while claiming the Govt is still committed to Net Zero as a policy. The details indicate that it is the belief that winning the Uxbridge and South Ruislip by-election was a public rejection of ULEZ in the Constituency, the irony being that the Ultra Low Emission Zone policy in Boris Johnson's seat was the policy of the man himself when he was London Mayor.

    Thus, the science has again become irrelevant, it is all about 'the pound in your pocket', and whether or not it is too expensive to implement schemes such as ULEZ, too demanding to expect a full transition away from fossil fuel driven vehicles by 2030, and yet again the 'why are we doing it when others are not'? So much for the 'Going it alone' justiification for Brexit, and the curious situation that now puts the UK on the same trajectory as the EU when it comes to EV's.

    For Sunak though, what he thinks could be a vote winner, has angered some in his own party, but it remains to be seen if enough of them exist to threaten his leadership. As for Climate Change....we're doomed!

    What wasn't mentioned is that China still has lower emissions per capita than the USA (10.95t vs 17.9t) and many other developed countries. That seems like the more relevant metric for the burden of responsibility.

    Not doing business with China would only reduce world emissions if the economic activity switched to countries that use lower emissions energy sources.
