Energy deal - but no target to cut Britain's carbon emissions - UK Politics - UK - The Independent
Legally binding commitments to cut the amount of carbon that power stations can emit will not be included in the new Energy Bill following a bitter row within the Coalition.

...This will be seen as a partial victory for Mr Osborne who feared that setting a rigid target now could add a new burden on industry. However, he failed in his efforts to block the introduction of a target altogether. The Chancellor will also publish plans next month on how to boost gas production.

John Sauven, the executive director of Greenpeace, said: "By failing to agree to any carbon target for the power sector until after the next election, David Cameron has allowed a militant tendency within his own ranks to derail the Energy Bill. It's a blatant assault on the greening of the UK economy."
