Climate Change Bill — Purpose is 2 degrees — 25 Feb 2008 at 16:25
The majority of Lords voted for the Climate Change Bill to have the "principle aim" to--
- ensure that UK emissions of greenhouse gases do not exceed the level necessary to contribute to limiting the global average temperate increase to not more than 2 degrees C above pre-industrial levels.
This appeared as a new clause at the start of the Bill.
-  Climate Change Bill, House of Lords.
