It should make interesting reading if they include realistic costings. That may be over-optimistic though, as is the idea that they have anything useful to say about why they think all the upheaval is needed at all. As for COP26, flying 30,000 climate alarmists to Glasgow to complain about ’emissions’ says it all about their blatant hypocrisy.

The Committee on Climate Change has revealed plans to publish a blueprint for achieving net-zero ahead of the landmark COP26 climate summit next year, reports EnergyVoice.

Dozens of delegates from the clean energy sector met virtually for the first day of Scottish Renewables Annual Conference 2020 earlier to discuss what needs to happen in order to meet climate targets post-Covid-19.

Among them was Chris Stark, chief executive of the Committee on Climate Change, who confirmed the public body would be releasing a plan to axe carbon emissions in the coming years.

The report will be released around a year before the landmark COP26 climate conference in Glasgow.

Around 30,000 politicians and environmental campaigners from around the world are due to take to the SEC in November next year for the UN summit.

The event will be the most important round of talks since world leaders agreed the Paris Agreement to establish climate ambitions in 2015.

It was originally due to take place this year but was put on hold due to coronavirus.

Mr Stark said: “In December my institution is going to give much more detail about how we see that transition taking place. We’re going to give our advice on what’s called the UK’s 6th carbon budget.

“We’re going to be spelling out, for the first time ever, a full pathway to net-zero in the UK and in Scotland. That means in every sector we’ll have the deployment information, the investment numbers, the costs and crucially also the benefits.

“We’re going to be publishing this work around a year before COP26 in Glasgow and I hope that it will light the blue touch paper ahead of 2021.”
