• Voluntary agreement to phase out incandescent light bulbs by 2011, long overdue and weak in comparison with other initiatives around the world, including Australia's mandatory initiative, say Greenpeace, September 27 [1]
  • Greenpeace reaction to Gordon Brown's speech: "Gordon Brown talked about being a world leader in green technology but put no flesh on the bones of how to get there. After ten years we're still at the bottom of most league tables when it comes to renewable energy. If he really does mean business he should stand up now and declare that there will be no new coal fired power stations like the one proposed at Kingsnorth in Kent." John Sauven, September 24 [2]

  • BBC abandons plan to run Planet Relief, a TV special on climate change. [6] Friends of the Earth's Tony Juniper: "This is a very disappointing decision considering the huge potential for the BBC in helping us more quickly make the shift toward a low carbon society. The science of climate change is very clear and if approached in the right way taking up this very serious issue would not compromise the BBC's impartiality. After all, the corporation has worked in a similar manner to that intended for Planet Relief on child welfare, international development and wildlife protection. We urge the BBC to press ahead with a major feature on climate change and to think through how best it can serve its public interest purpose by encouraging greener behaviour". September 5.
