We are greatly cheered that the public share our sense of the scale of ambition required and the urgency required to achieve it. A YouGov poll from October this year demonstrated that 51% of those polled do not think the government is doing enough to tackle climate change. We agree. In spite of a great deal more hot air in recent weeks, the proposals are tiny and dwarfed by what is needed to reach their own inadequate targets.
The Prime Minister’s recently announced 10-point plan only takes the UK just over half-way to meeting its interim climate targets, while government support for new roads, airport expansion and fossil fuel infrastructure undermines progress.
We are the party that is prepared to act tough not just talk tough on climate. If not now, when?
