Avoiding the rocks: steering a climate emergency by newspaper headlines is a dangerous course that can undermine the overall strategy.
The Council's climate change panel has been tasked with setting a target date for carbon zero as part of a Climate Action Plan - which is something Friends of the Earth are calling for, so I do not accept the newspaper's characterisation that we have "failed" to set a date when actually we are working to come up with a date that's ambitious and realistic, and we are carrying out what Friends of the Earth has asked us to do.
