North East has worst carbon emissions record

Defra has published trial statistics on levels of carbon emissions by local authority areas for 2003.

They show that in almost half of local authority areas the domestic sector generates more emissions than industry, commerce and the public sector.

The North East has the worst per capita emissions, followed by Wales, with N. Ireland coming off best.

The figures will hopefully allow local authorities to develop a strategy to reduce them.

Equally, more needs to be done to sell the energy efficiency message to residents in these areas.
