    Scotland’s emissions reduction targets are amongst the most stretching in the world and the Scottish Government has placed a welcome focus on a fair and just transition. Key milestones are ambitious, but a clear delivery plan on how they will be achieved is still missing and there is no quantification of how policies combine to give the emissions reduction required to meet Scotland’s targets.
    In these two reports we first review Scotland’s targets in light of changes to the methodology for estimating emissions since our previous target advice. We then assess Scotland’s progress in emissions reduction, policy plans, and delivery of those plans in the last year. Our focus is shifting to monitoring a set of quantified indicators of decarbonisation progress.

    Everyone agrees we need change but few are willing to do anything that's 'inconvenient' to them.

    ScotGov are paralysed - they should actually initiate a 'less places to drive' theme, starting with cities...
    Of course until we get railway sorted that's delayed. Also need lower fares to prime that too.

    It's almost like they should spend all the money on railways, buses and active travel and nothing on roads...

    (waiting for the wails of, "but buses need roads", "what about the disabled", "fill the bl--dy potholes"...)
