UK planning law on climate change
12 October 2006

A climate change bill which could see regular targets put in place to cut UK carbon dioxide emissions is being considered by the government.

An independent system to gauge progress in reducing greenhouse gases is also likely to be included, BBC political editor Nick Robinson said.

The move follows a campaign by Friends of the Earth - supported by the Tories and Liberal Democrats - for such a law.

A Nasa study says the world is the warmest it has been for 12,000 years.
