UK fights to stop carbon emissions

The U.K. has set one of the most ambitious carbon emission-reduction targets among major economies, making the country a case study in how climate goals call for big shifts in policy, the economy and technology.
Britain is one of several heavy polluters including the U.S., China and the European Union to have unveiled emission plans
Fires in North America and in Russia’s northeast, flooding in Europe and China and a severe drought in Brazil have injected additional urgency into diplomatic efforts to limit the rise in global temperatures.
In a bid to establish the U.K.’s environmental bona fides Prime Minister, said the country will reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by 78% from 1990 levels by 2035. President Biden, meanwhile, aims to halve U.S. emissions by 2030 from 2005 levels. China is targeting a peak in emissions by 2030.
The reductions would likely bring tough changes in areas including transportation, housing and industry, according to energy executives, bankers and investors. The U.K. government is committed to meeting its targets and will publish a plan for reaching net-zero emissions by 2050
Hitting the U.K.’s longer-run target of net-zero emissions by 2050 would involve cleaning up sectors such as manufacturing and construction. Doing so would partly rely on less-established technologies such as using hydrogen to fire furnaces and kilns, and on capturing and storing carbon.
