more greenwash- UK CO2 emissions UP not down

Not in the least surprising as those of us campaigning for environmentally friendly policy are aware..So what has Julie morgan MP to say to this and is she still boasting about Browns actions on CO2?

Britain is responsible for hundreds of millions more tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions than official figures admit, according to a new report that undermines UK claims to lead the world on action against global warming. The analysis says pollution from aviation, shipping, overseas trade and tourism, which are not measured in the official figures, means that UK carbon consumption has risen significantly over the past decade, and that the government's claims to have tackled global warming are an "illusion".
