BBC: "Councils 'must lower carbon emissions'"

Link to BBC web site

"Local authorities across the UK should have a statutory duty to combat climate change, government advisors recommend.

"The Committee on Climate Change says that councils can make major cuts in greenhouse gas emissions in areas such as housing, traffic and waste.

"... The committee is the government's statutory adviser on climate change, and has recommended progressively tighter carbon budgets for the UK leading towards the legally binding goal of an 80% cut from 1990 levels by 2050."
