Britain abolishes the Department of Energy and Climate Change | Watts Up With That?
Obama wants us to be like Europe. Britain just closed their Department of Energy and Climate Change. I’m good with that. RM
The British Global Warming Policy Forum welcomes the abolishment of the Department of Energy and Climate Change. The new government under Theresa May focuses on economic growth, international competitiveness and leaving the European Union, the decision will provide vital savings. It is hoped that the abolition of DECC will also encourage a new emphasis on cost-effective policy-making. “Moving energy policy to the new Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy should give ministers a fresh impetus to ensure that the costs for consumers and businesses are driven down, not pushed further up,” said GWPF director Dr Benny Peiser.
