Is the UK further along with their climate legislation that the United States?

    Yes. The UK was actually the first nation to pass climate legislation through its parliament which is legally binding. Signed into law in 2008, the bill requires the UK to reduces its carbon emissions by 26% by 2020 and 60% by 2050 (both on 1990 levels). The government is also required to publish carbon budget reports every 5 years and establish a Committee on Climate Change, which advises on the carbon budgets and trading credits. That’s much further than the US has gotten as of yet.
