Mary Nichols said: “CARB will be exploring ways to ensure communities get the reductions of air pollution they so desperately need to keep the air clean and breathable -- and continue to fight climate change,” “That might mean, for example, tougher requirements for low-carbon fuels, looking at tighter health-protective regulations on California refineries, doubling down on our enforcement efforts on mobile and stationary sources -- and might lead to an outright ban on internal combustion engines” External link

David Pearson says: “The Scottish and UK Governments are committed to lowering the country’s carbon footprint. One obvious way of achieving a major step forward in achieving this would be to go for a wide-scale implementation of district heating for as many of the commercial buildings in city centres as is feasible,” “Take Glasgow city centre. The Scottish Government’s carbon reduction targets are not going to be met unless we stop burning gas in the centre of major cities like Glasgow and Edinburgh within the next 30 years. Schemes that have used engines to deliver heat and power have actually increased the local nitrogen oxide [NOx] emissions and with wider electricity decarbonisation have seen their carbon dioxide [CO2] emissions for heat rise by around 700% in five years,” External link

heraldscotland Wednesday, May 1, 2019 1:11:00 PM CEST

David Pearson says: “If you are looking to cut the carbon footprint of these kinds of buildings, solutions like better insulation will only drive at best around a 20% improvement, not a 100% improvement. The only way you are going to get to a 100% reduction is through connecting up multiple buildings via a district heating scheme,” External link

Ciaran Cuffe said: “The Government should be bending over backwards to encourage and facilitate new ways of getting around that are good for the planet,” “Instead of encouraging this, the gards are confiscating electric scooters and the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport has kicked the issue to touch by commissioning reports from the Road Safety Authority. His Department seems reluctant to provide regulations” External link
