Stop Climate Chaos Scotland has today welcomed the announcement from the Scottish Government that it will include fertiliser planning within the Common Agriculture Policy’s (CAP) Greening rules in order to tackle climate change .
Agriculture and related land use is responsible for a huge 21% of Scotland’s total greenhouse gas emissions. This is in large part due to fertiliser spreading .
Announcements made today demonstrate that the Scottish Government is serious about getting Scotland back on track to fulfil the promises set out in the Climate Change Act. 
Stop Climate Chaos Scotland (SCCS) made the comment on the day the latest climate emissions figures were released which showed for a third successive year the Scottish Government has failed to meet the targets set out in the Act.
Gina Hanrahan, spokesperson for Stop Climate Chaos Scotland said:
**Interim comment – full response after Ministeral statement at 14.30**
Commenting on today’s announcement from the Scottish Government on the latest climate emission figures, Gina Hanrahan from Stop Climate Chaos Scotland said :
“It’s been a difficult start to the implementation of the Climate Change Act, but the Scottish Government’s package of new measures across different sectors such as energy efficiency, low carbon travel and district heating looks promising.
Stop Climate Chaos Scotland welcomes the announcement, from Transport Minister, Keith Brown MSP, of additional funding for cycling.
Cycling and walking provide an opportunity for people to travel in a greener way, but can also improve their health and wellbeing.
Scotland's biggest civil society coalition says a new hard-hitting UN report shows that the country needs to take further action to fulfil the promise of its Climate Change Act.
Stop Climate Chaos Scotland was reacting to a report published yesterday (Sunday 13 March) by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
