## Thank you

Progress on the reduction of emissions is proceeding slowly across the world by the largest emitters. Emissions in China were 26 times those of the United Kingdom in 2015 but initiatives are being made to expand their nuclear fleet. In the USA, the success of fracking for gas has resulted in increases in gas-fired generation at the expense of coal and it is claimed that their reduction in emissions exceeds that of Europe with all its subsidised wind and solar generation. This is the result of emissions from gas CCGT generation being around 40% of those from coal-fired generation.
