The new British government eliminated the nation’s climate change agency this week.
British Prime Minister Theresa May decided to get rid of the Department of Energy and Climate Change and turn its duties over to the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the BBC reported Thursday.
While many environmentalists were alarmed by the decision, the head of Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy sought to assure Britons that climate change remained on the government’s agenda.
“I am thrilled to have been appointed to lead this new department charged with delivering a comprehensive industrial strategy, leading government’s relationship with business, furthering our world-class science base, delivering affordable, clean energy and tackling climate change,” Greg Clark said, according to the BBC.
