Aviation emissions cap proposed



Aviation emissions cap proposed
Carbon emissions from aviation need to be capped as soon as possible, the UK climate change committee has claimed.

The group has written to the UK government demanding that an agreement is reached at the UN climate change conference in Copenhagen.

Having been set up by the government to advise on the issue, the committee delivered a letter to Lord Adonis, the transport secretary and climate change secretary Ed Miliband.

David Kennedy, chief executive of the committee, said: "We are calling for a cap that would not require people to fly less than today, but would constrain aviation emissions growth going forward.

"Such a cap together with deep emissions cuts in other sectors would limit the risk of dangerous climate change and the very damaging consequences for people here and in other countries that this would have."

The group called for low carbon targets to be changed so that aviation emissions do not go higher than 2005 levels by 2050.
