As and when a comprehensive international agreement on climate change is reached, the EU (and the Government) is committed to reducing EU greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent. against 1990 levels. The Government believe that a quick and transparent process for scaling up the EU emissions reduction target from 20-30 per cent. in the event of such an international commitment is essential.

Looking at the great hole left in my sitting room wall yesterday (by the MARK energy-saving GROUP of Leicester) causing CH to be increased in order to counteract the cold blast, am at a loss to understand how the so-called FREE wall insulation for pensioners is helping Energy and Climate Change, or improving the warmth in our homes.
A warning should be given before such work is undertaken.
My energy bills will now rise. Who will compensate me for this increase?
