Get Net-Zero Done

  • by JW

The UK government wants to become ‘carbon neutral’ by 2050:

Climate change: technology, leadership and lifestyle

Devon County Council wants to Get Net-Zero Done rather earlier:

Devon aims to be carbon neutral by 2030

Devon going carbon neutral


Here’s a definition from Wikipedia:

Carbon neutrality, or having a net zero carbon footprint, refers to achieving net zero carbon dioxide emissions by balancing carbon emissions with carbon removal (often through carbon offsetting) or simply eliminating carbon emissions altogether (the transition to the “post-carbon economy”). It is used in the context of carbon dioxide-releasing processes associated with transportation, energy production, agriculture, and industrial processes.

Perhaps Finland’s target of 2035 is more realistic:


Finland’s Race to Go Carbon Neutral

How do you achieve net-zero carbon emissions in just fifteen years?
In Finland, a fisherman-turned-climate scientist believes he has part of the answer: re-wilding the country’s peat fields.
Gabriel Gatehouse travels to the country’s frozen north to meet Tero Mustonen, as he battles lobbyists and vested interests in government and the peat industry, in a race to mitigate the consequences of climate change.
