Radical Change in the Lifestyle Might Bring a Greener Future for Brits

Residents in the United Kingdom would have to consider a radical change in their lifestyles, if they want to enjoy a pollution-free and greener future, a report prepared by the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT), has said.

Paul Allen, CAT's Development Director, was quoted by the Scotsman as saying that if these radical steps are taken, the United kingdom could be carbon neutral within the next two decades.

CAT says achieving such a drastic cut in emissions is possible and may be the only way to tackle climate change.

"What we are saying is that we need a huge programme, a bit like the US space project in the Sixties. When that was launched it was known to be a huge target, but the driving force to make it work was there. We think that zero carbon Britain can do that again - it can give us a positive future. It is a political challenge but we had the political will power to abolish slavery even though lots of people said that would cost the economy too much," Allen said.

The authors of the report define a zero carbon economy as one in which fossil fuels are not burned, or in which all emissions from fossil fuels are prevented from entering the atmosphere.

The UK government has set a target of cutting 60 per cent of carbon emissions by 2050, which is higher than many other countries. But the CAT believes this is not enough.

In its report, the CAT suggests creating a market for carbon that affects every individual, household and company in the country. People would be given their own carbon credits called Tradable Energy Quotas (TEQs) and carry them on smart cards.

Each year the free allocation would decrease as the country moves towards zero carbon, with the effect that the value of the quotas will
