The unelected climate activists and green energy lobbyists who run the Climate Change Committee have turned the institution into a radical opposition party that is effectively undermining the government, damaging Britain’s image and credibility both at home and abroad.

While Lord Deben, the CCC’s chairman, attacks Boris Johnson over his failing climate policy, the Climate Change Committee is calling on the government to “kill off business travel to maintain Covid’s green benefits,” a mad proposal that would almost certainly kill thousands of UK businesses and tens of thousands of jobs.

It is high time to abolish the current structure of the Climate Change Committee and institute a radical reform of scientific government advice.

Two years after the U.K. government enshrined in law a target to reach net zero emissions by 2050, strategies covering everything from transport to home heating have been scrapped, delayed, or fell short when they were published, the Climate Change Committee said Thursday.

As a result, Johnson’s promises may ring hollow with other leaders when they convene in Glasgow, Scotland, later this year for a round of global talks known as COP26, said John Gummer, chairman of the committee. As COP26 president, the U.K. will need to encourage other nations to set their own mid-century decarbonization goals, putting the world on a path to limit global warming to 1.5 Celsius.

Other countries “want us to say and do the same thing. And if we do that, then I think we can make a real success of COP26,” said Gummer, who is also a member of Parliament’s upper chamber, the House of Lords. “If we don’t, then it seems to me that it puts the whole process into jeopardy.”
