British Prime Minister Rish Sunak announced a bold package of climate policies on September 22nd, including a ban on sales of new gasoline and diesel cars by 2030, £1.3 billion of investment in public transportation, and a £160 million commitment to tree planting to help remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Sunak’s policy changes aim to make the UK the first major economy to reach net-zero emissions by the year 2050. This marks a major shift in the decade-long journey for the UK to become an international leader in tackling climate change.
