"And that means the next generation will pay more for the cost of moving from a carbon intensive society to the kind of low carbon no carbon society we need", added Debon. "Indecision risks undermining the remarkable successes of the last decade", Lord Deben, chairman of the committee, said in a foreword to the report.
In a new report, the Committee on Climate Change (CCC), which provides independent advice to the United Kingdom government on building a low-carbon economy and preparing for climate change, says they are "acutely concerned" by the UK's lack of progress.
