And you can make promises, but that doesn\’t mean that anything will actually happen.
The Government is lagging far behind its own targets to cut carbon emissions, a Parliamentary environment watchdog announced.
Government departments and agencies have pledged to reduce their carbon emissions by 12.5 per cent in 2010-11, compared with levels in 1999-00, and to go carbon neutral in 2012.
But the Government had only reduced its emissions by 4 per cent by 2006-07, which was "very poor progress", according to the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC).
So much for all that campaigning for "legally enforcable" reductions in emissions then.
