 Why is Labour so quiet on green issues?
With melting sea ice, extreme weather and continued warnings from leading scientists on the need to tackle climate change, it beggars belief that the coalition government persists in pushing though policies that will increase the nation's reliance on dirty and increasingly expensive fossil fuels.

UK - encouraging greener living - Defra publishes public attitudes research

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has published a framework to encourage environmentally friendly behaviour among individuals and communities. The report pulls together evidence on public understanding, attitudes and behaviours and draws conclusions on the potential for behaviour change among members of the public.
Defra's environmental segmentation model is also included in the research. It divides the public into seven clusters, each sharing a distinct set of attitudes and beliefs towards the environment and is based on people's responses to a broad range of attitudinal questions as part of the 2007 Defra attitudes and behaviours survey.
The model will be used to improve Government's understanding of people's environmental attitudes, values and behaviours towards the environment. By defining the different motivations and barriers to pro-environmental behaviour, the model will help policy makers understand how to support different groups of people to take action.
The report identifies 12 headline behaviour goals based on a range of low/high impact and easy/hard behaviours which could potentially engage large numbers of people and others which would be more appropriate for targeting particular population groups.
The 12 headline behaviours are:

§                  use more efficient vehicles

§                  use your car less for short trips

§                  avoid unnecessary short haul flights

§                  use water responsibly

§                  install insulation / microgeneration

§                  manage your energy usage

§                  recycle more

§                  waste less food

§                  buy energy efficient products

§                  eat more food that is locally in season

§                  adopt a lower impact diet.

The report also looks at people's willingness to act on these headline goals. The results indicate that there are some behaviours, such as wasting less food and more responsible water usage, where most people are already willing and, in principle, able to act.
The more challenging behaviours, such as avoiding unnecessary flights or installing microgeneration for electricity, are those where there is relatively low willingness to act, or where there are external barriers to action.
Motivators and barriers vary across population groups and may change over time according to life stage and other individual circumstances. Common motivators for behaviour change include health or financial benefits, the 'feel good factor' and 'being part of something'. Common barriers include the need for activities to fit with people's current lifestyle and the difficulty of changing habits.

Defra's Framework for Pro-environmental Behaviours is designed to support policy development and implementation in Defra, in other Government departments and externally.

The research can be found at:

UK - local councils crucial to fighting climate change
The statistics underline the vital role local authorities can play in fighting climate change by reducing carbon dioxide emissions, both through their own actions and by setting an example to the wider community..
The statistics showed that Nationally:-
45 % of the emissions were attributed to the industrial, commercial and public sector sources,
27 %  of the emissions were attributed to the domestic sector,
28 %  of the emissions were attributed to road transport.

The industrial, commercial and public sector has the highest share of emissions in 48 % of authorities. The road transport sector has the highest share in 31 per cent and the domestic sector the highest share in 21 % of authorities. The road transport sector has the lowest share in 46 % of authorities.
Overall, about 48 % of domestic end-user emissions come from gas use and 42 % are due to electricity consumption.
Domestic emissions are between 2.4 and 2.7 tonnes per person per year in about half of local authority areas.
The statistics aim to produce the most reliable and consistent breakdown of carbon dioxide emissions across the country, using nationally-available data.

The Environment in your Pocket   DEFRA November 20077

A publication by DEFRA outlining what is happening in our Environment.
Some interesting facts and figures on temperatures and rainfall, such as:-
1. When asked about various actions that could be seen a potentially wasteful, almost a quarter of people said that they always or very often "keep the tap running when brushing their teeth", 18 per cent always or very often "leave the TV on standby overnight", 12 per cent "fill a kettle with more water than they'll use" and 11 per cent always or very often "leave their mobile phone charger switched on when not in use"
2. The long term central England temperature record shows that eight out of the ten years warmest years have occurred since 1990 and that the period from May to September 2006 was warmer that any equivalent period since the central England record began in 1659
3. In England and Wales in 2006, 2.3 million properties were estimated to be in an area at risk of flooding; for just over half a million of those the risk was considered to be significant
4.Total greenhouse gas emissions from the UK food chain are estimated to have been 116 million tonnes (CO2 equivalent) in 2004; over three-quarters of the emissions came from the food production and agriculture stages, the remainder came from net trade and household food use
