CLIMATE SIGNIFICANCE

The UK has the potential to be a fully green nation. From renewable energies to smart agriculture, Great Britain is in advance in many domains. It has started investing in shoreline wind, wave and geothermal power, whilst also buying from Areva, (the world’s leading nuclear energy provider) the largest nuclear power plant in history. 

In 2006, the landmark climate report Stern Review concluded that the cost of non-action far exceeded the investments required to prepare the country for the coming climatic changes. And Her Majesty’s subjects have followed suit by reducing their carbon emissions, raising their carbon efficiency and engaging a large refurbishment programme for housing heating efficiency.

Despite large offshore fossil fuel reserves, confirming the potential for renewable energies, the UK is one of the most active countries in the exploitation of natural gas from the fracking method, which is something of an environmental heresy. Fracking contaminates underground water and soils, facilitates landslides and earthquakes, and requires incredibly large quantities of freshwater. 

The UK is an archipelago whose heartland island is peatland. As a result, one of the main unknowns of the climate equation in the coming decades will be sea level rise. How much of England will actually get gnawed by the relentless North Sea? Will London fall? Will there be a new season of Doctor Who? Her Majesty needs saving, and so does the country, Bond. Pick a mission.

DATA INSIGHTS

The UK is classified as a high-income country by the World Bank. The history of carbon emissions and exposure to climate risk provides useful insights into the UK’s position in the fight against climate change. The following plots give an overview of the UK’s historic greenhouse gas emissions in perspective with global emission levels, as well as the country’s climate action and sustainability performance.
