O'Neill subsequently criticised Prime Minister Boris Johnson for a "lack of understanding" about climate change and as demonstrating a "huge lack of leadership".

Johnson's announcement got a tepid reception from Rebecca Newsom, the head of politics for Greenpeace UK, who said Johnson needs to take more far ranging action on all aspects of carbon emission reduction instead of focusing only on transportation.

"Global scientists are clear that unless we break this trend now and start sustained reduction in global emissions with a clear net zero landing zone by 2050 or shortly afterwards, we will be dealing with unprecedented climate conditions and vast economic and human consequences within decades, not centuries".

"Unless we take urgent action, we will get 3°C hotter", Johnson said on Tuesday at the formal launch of United Kingdom plans to host the COP26 in Glasgow in November, now widely seen as a "last chance" to lock in serious and co-ordinated action under the UN umbrella.

However, O'Neill strenuously denied numerous allegations levelled against her in a damning open letter circulated in the media yesterday.

Boris Johnson responded to claims that he was reviving his beliefs about "climate change denial" by accusing Labor of wanting to confiscate cars and abolishing foreign holidays. This is five years earlier than previously announced and includes hybrid vehicles for the first time.

The Opposition leader went on to criticise Mr Johnson's record on climate change, telling the Commons: "Considering his monumental failure in advance of COP26, isn't it really just a continuation of his climate change denial statements that he was regularly making up until 2015?"

"There can be no greater responsibility than protecting our planet, and no mission that a global Britain is prouder to serve", Prime Minister Boris Johnson said.

"It will be the year when we choose a cleaner, greener future for all".

The PM will also be joined by Italian PM Giuseppe Conte at the event, to be held in central London. There is now no national scheme for home insulation and energy efficiency - the last one was abandoned almost five years ago - and onshore wind farm construction levels have fallen sharply as government support has been withdrawn and planning obstacles put in the way of new turbines. Countries are expected to deliver more ambitious domestic plans for cutting greenhouse gases by 2030 - as current proposals are not enough to prevent unsafe temperature rises.

She also wrote: "You had a vision for Brexit and you got Brexit done".

Edmund King, president of Britain's AA motoring association, said the new target on vehicle sales was incredibly challenging.

"We need to hear how government plans to fulfil its ambitions in a sustainable way; one that safeguards industry and jobs, allows people from all income groups and regions to adapt and benefit, and, crucially, does not undermine sales of today's low emission technologies, including popular hybrids, all of which are essential to deliver air quality and climate change goals now".

Speaking to the BBC, he said there are "a lot of things I have already agreed to do this year, not least the work I do for Alzheimer's Research UK, so I thought it was important that I carried on with that work".

That year will be the last date that consumers can purchase the vehicles.
