UK PM's policy "dismally unambitious"

Tony Blair has been pandering to the US administration for years, but was recently called out by the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee. They are very unhappy about Blair's policy, basically saying that he doesn't do what he says he wants to do, and even that is not enough.

I don't have a lot to add to what the story says. The UK has been much more interested in and active about climate change. The coverage in their press is vastly better than in the US. From this I can only assume the British people are generally more concerned about climate change than Americans. The only other point to make is that this is all just politics anyway, and has so little to do with the science of climate change that we should hardly treat them together (as I am doing on this blog).
