Cameron's cabinet policy: is the british government still firm in its positions after Paris COP21?
Do CO2 emissions need a legally binding treathy to limit global warming?
Are the british satisfied with the last Unitedn Nation forum on energy emissions held in Paris, the COP 21?
Recollecting some analysis it really looks like many from the UK political establishment are criticizing the "non legally binding" and volatile promises taken by continental europe governments in Paris.
UK energy policy, mostly based on Energy White Paper of May 2007 and Low Carbon Transition Plan of July 2009, is one of the most aggressive policy we now have in Europe -and it's legally binding-.

David Cameron, now leader of the only-winning-party, leading the conservative cabinet
It is very appropriate to quote David Cameron here, as it seems there is a U turn in the national policy: "Every subsidy for renewable energy if we're not careful ends up on the bill of a small businessman or business woman having to pay more for their energy, so this isn't a costless exercise investing in renewable energy" he said. "It does cost and the costs fall mostly onto small businesses and consumers. So we have to have a balance here." That's what he said in October attending a meeting with an organisation of young small entrepreneurs.
Confronting it with the 2009 quote of Ed Milbrand, "...Our default position as a country needs to change. The biggest threat to our beautiful countryside isn't wind turbines, it's climate change" I can positively assume that there is going to be a U turn in the british energy policy. Threaties decided and signed while labour cabinets were ruling and labour MPs statements are beeing denied by some skeptic opinions on UN last threaty. The conservative establishment, now ruling alone, can seriously think to reduce subsides on green energy if they do not see agreements legally binding for the continental Europe .
