UK not to meet Kyoto targets?

The great Oil Drum has an excellent article on the UK government's believe in reaching the Kyoto targets, yet the numbers show a different story.

"With further indigenous gas depletion guaranteed and the gradual decommission of the nuclear fleet it seems impossible for the CO2 emissions from electricity generation to do anything thing other than rise. Add to this the dramatic rise in CO2 emissions from aviation and it is hard to see how the UK domestic goal will be met and although the Kyoto target is currently being met it isn't unrealistic to suggest that by the turn of the decade the UK could also miss the international target. "

Go and check it out. It is an excellent detailed piece on how the UK is more and more relying on coal...
