Bummer: Cold weather hampers UK attempts to fight warm weather

BBC News - Climate policies 'need new tools', advisers say
The UK's greenhouse gas emissions are not falling fast enough to meet government targets, say advisers.

Emissions rose by 3% during 2010, says the Committee on Climate Change (CCC).

This was due to extra energy demand in cold weather; but the general trend is flat, which is "incompatible" with the 3% annual cuts needed, the CCC says.
