UK carbon emissions fell by almost three per cent last year, topping off a decade of deep decarbonisation which has left CO2 at its lowest level since the English Football League was founded in 1888, fresh analysis released today indicates. CO2 emissions dropped 2.9 per cent in 2019, as coal power played an ever decreasing role in the UK energy mix and renewable electricity capacity expanded, according to data from Carbon Brief. The latest annual results suggest emissions have fallen 28 per cent over the past decade, further cementing the UK’s position as the industrialised economy with the most impressive emissions reduction track record.
