Climate report shows Government mustn’t rely on technology

12 October 2009
Responding to the Committee on Climate Change’s report released today [1], Stephen Joseph, executive director of Campaign for Better Transport, said: 

"This is a clear message to the Government that it can't rely on electric vehicles and biofuels as transport's contribution to tackling climate change. As the committee says, more radical changes in transport planning and roll-out of travel plans and other ‘smarter choices’ are essential to cut transport emissions. Funding for these needs to be protected and expanded in forthcoming spending reviews.”
