Boris blunder: Britain MISSING from globe in video to promote PM’s green revolution | Politics | News

The Prime Minister narrated a slick video showcasing his proposals but the spinning globe used in the two-minute animation had a glaring omission which was quickly seized upon by social media users.

One stunned viewer tweeted: “They’ve used an animation which doesn’t have the UK on it!”

Another said: “They deliberately removed the UK when it should be there OMG.”

One Twitter user pointed out the globe also had no polar icecaps and suggested the British Isles were underwater.

The video was produced to accompany the launch of the Prime Minister green initiatives.

Mr Johnson said: “Although this year has taken a very different path to the one we expected, I haven’t lost sight of our ambitious plans to level up across the country.

“My 10-point plan will create, support and protect hundreds of thousands of green jobs, whilst making strides towards net zero by 2050.

“Our green industrial revolution will be powered by the wind turbines of Scotland and the North East, propelled by the electric vehicles made in the Midlands and advanced by the latest technologies developed in Wales, so we can look ahead to a more prosperous, greener future.”

The areas the 10-point plan focus on are:

• Offshore wind: Producing enough offshore wind to power every home by 2030, supporting up to 60,000 jobs.

• Hydrogen: Creating the capacity to generate low carbon hydrogen for industry, transport, power and homes, and aiming to develop the first town heated entirely by hydrogen by the end of the decade.

• Nuclear: Advancing large scale nuclear plants and developing the next generation of small and advanced reactors, which could support 10,000 jobs.

• Electric vehicles: Accelerating the transition to electric vehicles, and transforming national infrastructure to better support the technology.

• Public transport, cycling and walking: Making cycling and walking more attractive ways to travel and investing in zero-emission public transport.

• Jet Zero and greener maritime: Research projects for zero-emission planes and ships.

• Homes and public buildings: Making homes, schools and hospitals greener, warmer and more energy efficient, including a target to install 600,000 heat pumps every year by 2028.

• Carbon capture: Becoming a world-leader in technology to capture and store harmful emissions away from the atmosphere, with a target to remove 10 million tonnes of carbon dioxide by 2030, equivalent to all emissions of the industrial Humber.

• Nature: Protecting and restoring the natural environment, including planting 30,000 hectares of trees every year.

• Innovation and finance: Developing cutting-edge technologies and making the City of London the global centre of green finance.

The widely trailed move to bring forward the phase out of petrol and diesel cars comes in the wake of guidance from the Government’s advisory Committee on Climate Change which said it should be implemented by 2032 at the latest.

The committee has also called for greater action in other areas such as cutting the carbon from heating homes, as the UK is off track to meet its climate-tackling goals.
