ABSTRACT
The author comments on the British government's current flagship statute on global warming, the Climate Change Bill. He raises two fundamental questions in relation to this legislation. The first concerns the matter of certainty. The second relates to the issue of enforcement. He stresses that the absence of any link between powers and duties undermines the government's claim to be creating a bill that imposes legally binding targets in support of business certainty and long-term investor confidence.
