UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Oct. 4 that Britain was aiming to produce "clean power" by 2035 as part of the country's goal of reaching net zero carbon emissions.

Britain, which will host the COP26 climate summit next month, has committed to cut carbon emissions by 78% by 2035 in what Johnson says is the world's most ambitious climate change target which would put the country on track to become a net-zero emissions producer by 2050.
