The CCC's second report, entitled Biomass in CO2 Economy, concludes that biomass can only play the role it deserves The United Kingdom's transition towards zero is needed if stricter governance is needed to ensure sustainable supply.
Land is an important natural resource, but previous guidelines for the use of United Kingdom land are fragmented and incomplete. The shift is necessary, stresses the government's Climate Change Committee (CCC), because beef and lamb produce the most greenhouse gases.
"We do not say that the answer is vegetarianism, that would be the wrong answer, it's that people eat better meat, eat less of it, and get the well-balanced diet the government wants."
The Reducing meat consumption under the Government's Healthy Eating Guidelines would reduce emissions and release land for other purposes The report does not require people to switch to vegetarian diets.
"Land use policies must be fundamentally different than they have been since the war", he warned and re-stated Agriculture Bill As the UK leaves the country, the European Union must take numerous necessary actions. The government disagrees: We have reduced our emissions by 43 percent since 1
A [19459007E] was created a new environmental lobby, which aims to "encourage and support" the government to combat the "irreversible" consequences of the climate .
Carbon dioxide, which represents up to 15 percent of current UK CO2 emissions, could be linked through combined biomass capture and storage facilities (BECCS). Such fuels, when used in a life cycle analysis, are reported to produce up to three times the amount of fossil fuels. "Fundamental Reform" Lord Deben, Chairman of the CCC, said that the way land is used in the UK requires "fundamental reform". "Crucially, trying to change climate change without biomass would be more difficult and expensive."

"Biomass." is the only flexible renewable energy source that can provide all the necessary support services to maintain a secure power system, as more renewable energy, such as wind and sun, go online, which further reduces our CO2 emissions. "" An unsustainable supply of biomass has no place in our future energy mix. "
" This, in turn, would make negative emissions a reality so that the UK can go down the road to reach a zero-zero economy and to end his contribution to the climate changes ".
