Safe climate

Only Greens can be trusted to protect the environment

The environment matters to all of us.

It's the air that we breathe, the water we drink, our parks and countryside. 

Whilst the other parties talk about protecting the environment, it is only Greens who will take the action needed. Governments must prioritise action on climate change to avoid devastating harm to the economy, society and environment. A rapid transition to a zero carbon economy will create millions of jobs and secure a safe climate for our children and grandchildren.

Greens will:

  • Take serious action on climate change by working with other countries to ensure global temperatures do not rise beyond 2 degrees.
  • Phase out fossil-fuel based energy generation and nuclear power.
  • Invest in a public programme of renewable generation, flood defences and building insulation

In the 2nd quarter of 2015 the UK only generated 25.3% of its electricity from renewables. But the Government has targeted the solar and wind industries to cut their share of the energy generation market, and boosted fracking and oil drilling. This runs counter to Government commitments on cutting carbon emissions.

    The Green party’s General Election policies are summarised here: https://www.greenparty.org.uk/election-priorities.html
    We’re the only political party which puts the environment at the centre of its policies. This is the overall message – you should be able to find more detail on the Green Party main website:

    “It’s not fun and it’s not pretty but it’s a must: we must liberate ourselves from the threat of climate change. Without doing so our future will never be as bright or as hopeful as we want it to be. By investing in renewables and phasing out coal, oil and gas plants we will create clean air, rivers, parks, and gardens, we will limit the danger of flooding and prevent fracking companies from drilling into our countryside. We have so much to gain as a nation from making choices today that might seem new and uncertain but in the long-run will bring us that stability and certainty we all want”.

    I was attracted into here by the headline claim “Climate Sense: keeping fossil fuels in the ground” but find no policy nor reference to policy to do that …as a Green Party member, I feel both disappointed and concerned as to how we are being presented… should I be?
