2030 the developing target for organisations to meet Net Zero: In its 125th anniversary year, the National Trust announces it will achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2030.  This will include planting 20 million trees in 10 years – increasing tree coverage on NT land from 10% to 17%.

Climate Assembly UK was commissioned by six cross-party House of Commons Select Committees in summer 2019 in response to the Government’s commitment to meet net zero carbon emissions by 2050. Climate Assembly UK will meet for the first time at the end of January and will have three further weekend meetings before the end of March. The 110 assembly members will consider how net zero can be achieved by 2050 and make recommendations on what the Government, businesses, the public and wider UK society should do to reduce carbon emissions.

Terrorist police quickly withdraw their classification of Extinction Rebellion XR as ‘an extremist ideology.’ This is a remarkable own goal given the avowed non-violent principles of XR.  Oh yes – it was one of the aims of XR last year that that Local authorities should declare Climate Emergencies and hold citizens assemblies. Perhaps they might look at the House of Commons decisions above.
