The UK government’s official climate adviser this week said that the country can zero out its contributions to climate change by the middle of the century.

If the target recommended by the Committee on Climate Change was officially adopted, it would put the UK on a more aggressive timetable than its current target of cutting emissions 80 percent by 2050 compared to 1990 levels, a goal enshrined in the 2008 Climate Change Act.

“Ten years after the Climate Change Act became law, now is the right moment to set a more ambitious goal,” the CCC said in a statement. “The CCC’s recommended targets, which cover all sectors of the UK, Scottish and Welsh economies, are achievable with known technologies, alongside improvements in people’s lives, and should be put into law as soon as possible.”
