This will ship jobs overseas, thus increasing pollution.
After seeing one of our greatest steel mills lost, funded partly by almost Â£1bn tax payer "carbon credits" for ceasing production, sending our jobs overseas, up comes a further assault on British manufacturing. Government admit that carbon monitoring is not possible, that systems are not in place, but all firms using more than Â£500k of electricity, i.e. the ones that matter, must, in just 40 days, provide details of consumption. "About two-thirds of businesses are totally unpreparedâ€. Fines of up to Â£250,000 will be suffered and the most productive businesses that use most energy will be forced to pay companies that do not produce, & consume less energy.
