THE UK's energy and climate change secretary Ed Miliband has signalled a climb down on the issue of including emissions from aviation and shipping in the Climate Change Bill. Under intense pressure form the green lobby the government will now accept an amendment tomorrow (Tuesday) in the bill to include these sectors.

The government's position had been that it was impractical to to include these international industries, partly because of the difficulties of calculating emission volumes.

It is being claimed that together aviation and shipping account for 7.5% . This move could seen as another obstacle placed in the way of reducing carbon output by switching from other modes of transport to shipping which has by far the lowest CO2 output per tonne mile.
