"We can achieve our goals for the climate but carry on travelling at the same time," she said.
The UK is always trying to reduce CO2 emissions but now a major shortage could spell trouble for several industries.
This week the Paris Agreement to address climate change enters into force, just ahead of world leaders reconvening at the

The E.U.'s TTIP assessment says that increases in CO2 emissions in its best case will be a "negligible" 11,000 tonnes. If the two-way trade in cars is going to add another 900,000 tonnes to that figure, it follows that other provisions in the proposed arrangements must bring about reductions in CO2 emissions on a similar scale.
As atmospheric carbon levels reach seemingly implacable heights, the degree to which sustainable solutions must be implemented follows suit. And yet, little headway has been made on this critical issue, at least according to recent forecasts from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which released its Fifth Assessment Report earlier this year.
