A new emissions target will require the UK to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050
The UK was the first major economy to pass the ‘net zero’ emissions law. This new target will require the UK to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero (relative to 1990 levels) by 2050. It will require reducing existing emissions and active removal of greenhouse gases. Click here to access the UK government My2050 carbon calculator to change the levers and hit net zero!
This is recommended for geographers aged 11+ up to GCSE. If you are studying A level go to the MacKay Carbon Calculator for interactive graphs and malleable data sets.
