Give councils no opt-out on climate policies, says Green Alliance

Two-thirds of councils are scaling back or abolishing climate change programmes, leading to calls for local authorities to be prevented from opting out of action.

Research published today by think-tank Green Alliance finds 37 per cent of councils are "deprioritising climate change" or even claiming it was never a priority. Meanwhile, 28 per cent are purely focusing on tackling emissions from their estate and ceasing to work on wider climate change issues.
