UK Parliament becomes the first national government to pass an Environment and Climate Emergency

UK Parliament becomes the first national government to pass an Environment and Climate Emergency

The UK parliament has become the first in the world to pass a motion declaring an "environment and climate emergency", as pressure on the government to adopt a net zero emission targets as soon as possible continued to intensify.

The declaration was preceded by a visit by teenage activist Greta Thunberg (to the Parliament) , the feature of David Attenborough’s documentary movie titled ‘Climate Change: The Facts’ and the 11-days of constant protest by an environmental group ‘Extinction Rebellion‘.

Climate Emergency

The decision of emergency in Parliament caters to national reductions and investment in the reduction of carbon emissions and saving the planet.
Compared to its 1990 levels, UK (United Kingdom) was later legally committed to a 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050 and recently featured as 1 of 18 developed economies to decrease CO2(carbon dioxide) emissions in the last 10 years.
