Low carbon transition by 2014 urged

Low carbon transition by 2014 urged
Countries must launch a low carbon "industrial revolution" in the next five years or risk potentially irrevocable climate change.

That is according to a new report commissioned by WWF, which suggested ways in which economies can reduce their emissions and control rising temperatures.

The study, carried out by Climate Risk, said that industrial growth rates will peak by 2014, after which point it will be nearly impossible to curb emissions.

"Clean industry sectors can only expand so far, so quickly," warned Keith Allott, head of climate change at WWF-UK.

He added: "If we wait until later than 2014 to begin aggressively tackling the problem, we will have left it too late to ensure that all the low carbon solutions required are ready to roll out at the scale needed if we intend to keep within the world's remaining carbon budget."

The UK's carbon reduction target is to reduce emissions by 80 per cent on 1990 levels in the next four decades.
