*Gas heating ban for new homes from 2025
New homes in the UK will have to be built with low-carbon heating
systems from 2025, reports BBC News, following chancellor Philip
Hammond's "spring statement" announced yesterday. The ban on gas
boilers for new homes will be accompanied by "world leading"
insulation standards, BBC News says, adding: "It's part of a bid by
Philip Hammond to address the concerns of children protesting about
climate change." The move comes after the govt's advisory
Committee on Climate Change (CCC) recommended no new homes should
connect to the gas grid by 2025 "at the latest", says the Financial
Times. [Carbon Brief covered the CCC's report at the time.] Around 14%
of UK greenhouse gas emissions come from homes, mainly their gas
boilers, notes the Guardian, which says the planned 2025 ban will go
out to consultation later this year. The move on gas boilers was
criticised by the Home Builders Federation and GMB Union, reports the
Times. Several papers carry inaccurate headlines via their online
coverage, including MailOnline ("The end of the gas boiler") and the
Sun ("Fossil fuel gas hobs and boilers BANNED in all new-build homes
from 2025" - the chancellor did not say anything about gas hobs.) The
chancellor announced a "grab bag" of other green measures, the FT
says, including looking at how to raise the proportion of "green gas"
injected into the grid and giving consideration to whether airlines
should be required to offer "genuinely carbon neutral offsets" for all
flights. BusinessGreen quotes the chancellor saying: "As with the
challenge of adapting to the digital age, so with the challenge of
shaping the carbon neutral economy of the future, we must apply the
creativity of the marketplace to deliver solutions to one of the most
complex problems of our time, climate change." The chancellor also
announced a call for evidence on how to help small businesses cut
their energy bills, BusinessGreen says. A second article from
BusinessGreen gathers reactions to the spring statement from the
"green economy", including the CCC's chief executive Chris Stark
saying the 2025 boiler ban for new homes "represents a genuine step
forward" and Friends of the Earth criticising the scope of the
chancellor's speech for "fiddling in the margins while the planet
burns". The Independent and City AM also cover the chancellor's
statement on gas boilers. -- Roger Harrabin, BBC News

Effects of global warming and solar geoengineering on precipitation seasonality
Using solar geoengineering to completely offset the global warming
caused by a quadrupling of CO2 emissions could affect regional
rainfall patterns, research finds. The modelling study finds large
increases in CO2 simulates large increases in rainfall in most world
regions, but the use of solar geoengineering largely offsets those
increases. However, for some regions such as in northern parts of
South America, the Arabian Sea and Southern Africa, solar
geoengineering does not significantly offset rainfall increases, the
research finds. (On Mon, Carbon Brief published an article
explaining the results of a study exploring changes to regional
rainfall if solar geoengineering is used to halve warming.)

LOL. The govt tried an insulation roll out and it fell flat

Because as we all know, 5 year olds are the gold standard of

Christ sake

Where do they think electric comes from.

Oh yes a bit comes from wind mills, this will be
just another go at making wind mills seemm normal.

By messing up all other fuels and prices.


This is the problem with the politcal class, they've got
a stitch up of power, the first past the post system
which allows them to be Green Remainers.

Gas IS low carbon!

The U.K. should have it's new nuclear capacity up & running
by then, so I guess they want people to switch to electric.

...while the gas is imported. The goal in Europe and the U.K.
especially has always been Mercantilism... at least since the
days of Louis XIV.

No, the world does NOT work the way you were always taught!
Capitalism is and always has been the enemy of the ruling
elite... anything that's "Fair" is their enemy.
