Reducing climate changing gases demands real leadership

November 23, 2018 10:00 AM

Green Lib Dems on Climate Change March 2015 (Steve.Bolter@greenlibdems.org.uk)Reacting to news that climate-changing gases in the atmosphere have reached a new high, former Liberal Democrat Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Ed Davey said "Climate change comes not just with an environmental cost, but a human cost. Unless we act now, the destruction could be unparalleled."

Mr Davey added "Frankly, however, this Conservative Government is moving at a glacial pace. Tory Ministers have no interest in tackling climate change, proven by the fact the UK is already set to miss the Paris Agreement objectives. Liberal Democrats demand better. Now is the time for real leadership. Liberal Democrats are offering just that with plans to bring forward decarbonisation targets by ten years and a radical plan to ensure the UK can meet them."
