  • CO2 emissions higher than Government admit, Friends of the Earth, January 31 [1] FoE claim the figures would be 6 per cent higher if pollution from international flights was included and is calling on the Government to include these missing emissions in the Climate Change Bill. "Aviation is the fastest growing source of emissions in the UK and has twice the climate impact because the gases are emitted at altitude. Yet the Government has left aviation emissions out of the Climate Change Bill currently being debated in parliament." The Environmental Audit Committee in Parliament has also questioned the Government's logic in leaving emissions out of the Climate Change Bill. topic
