In 14 years the United Kingdom will phase out fossil fuels

By the end of this week, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will officially announce at the annual conference of the Conservative Party in Manchester that from 2035 the country will receive all electricity from renewable sources, the Times reports. This news did not please all environmentalists, since the government is not going to close nuclear power plants. "Wanting to reduce the country`s dependence on natural gas and other fossil fuels, Boris Johnson will announce this week that all of Britain`s electricity from 2035 will come from renewable sources," a source told. "During his speech, the Prime Minister will present his party`s plans for a significant increase in investments in renewable and nuclear energy, while Britain is experiencing a crisis caused by a jump in gas prices."
