UK considered a 'leader' in 2030 climate talks

The UK has been hailed for showing leadership to broker a new target to cut carbon emissions, despite on-going objections from Poland to a deal later this month, the Guardian has reported.

Any suite of 2030 climate targets agreed now could be taken to a UN conference in Lima this December, allowing a push for reciprocal moves from other countries before a global summit in Paris next year, where a climate pact is supposed to be agreed.

UK energy and climate secretary Ed Davey told the Liberal Democrat conference that on the 2030 goals, Britain is winning and leading the argument.
