Question of the Day (07-Oct-20)
Ahead of the forthcoming Copenhagen climate talks, the UK government
asked the Climate Change Committee to advise on what should be done
about emissions from aviation in the UK. The committee estimated that
the aviation industry will have to cut emissions from planes back to
their 2005 level by 2050. That is much more permissive than the overall
UK target of cutting emissions 80% on 1990 levels by 2050. However, the
failure of aviation to play its full part could mean that the rest of
the economy has to reduce its emissions by 90% instead of 80%.
Which of the following can be inferred from the above?
