Reporting Scotland is on a yoonroll today. Story after story to make you feel bad about being here. Here’s the last one:
Two years ago, the Scottish Government pledged to set out plans to make the NHS here a world leader in sustainability and a net-zero organisation by 2045. With two weeks to go until the Glasgow summit, the BBC has learned it still hasn’t delivered that plan.https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m0010vk4/reporting-scotland-lunchtime-news-18102021
Wait, 2045? 24 years from now? Is it maybe a difficult plan that will take some time to get right? Did they have a target to get it done for COP26? Says who?
They’re on another roll to make Scotland and especially the SNP not look good as the UK hosts COP26. It’s a desperate challenge with Scotland producing 97% of its electricity from renewables, compared with only 35% in the UK as a whole, in 2019, planting 84% of the UK’s new trees that year and exporting 18GWh of electricity to England, enough for 28 million homes.
