Me speaking at the Reading Climate Change People’s March on 28 November 2015

In late April 2018 I was delighted to be voted in as Chair of the Reading Climate Change Partnership (RCCP). I’ll be serving for the next couple of years. And I’m looking forward to leading us through a period of growth, and the development of stronger links with communities and businesses across the town. These are challenging times. We need to regain the focus on climate change… something that has been sorely lacking over the last decade, despite the ever-more regular extreme weather events that we are seeing.

Happily Reading is in a positive place. We are just about to launch our new website ReadingCAN.org.uk (September 2018) – for the Reading Climate Action Network (RCAN). On the site we will share progress on the Reading Climate Change Strategy, and let you know about other climate change activities that you can get involved in.

UK Emission Targets
21 October 2017

The UK has lead the world by setting strong greenhouse gas reduction targets. Emissions since the 1990 baseline are shown to be encouraging: we have already exceeded our Kyoto Protocol target, by twice as much as the required 12.5%. The cuts have been most effective in gases like methane and nitrous oxide. Carbon dioxide emissions have reduced by one-tenth but we now have a big challenge to bring this down to meet our mid-century targets.
