Lib Dems: UK in the slow lane of climate action

by Steve Beasant on 28 June, 2018

Responding to the Climate Change Committees’ progress report published this morning, former Liberal Democrat Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Ed Davey said:

“The Tories must listen to this hard-hitting report- it should be a wake up call.

“Ten years on from the world leading Climate Change Act that had all party support, the Conservatives are putting Britain in the slow lane of climate action.

“By stopping new technologies like tidal lagoons and by preventing the roll out of proven technologies like onshore wind and solar, the Conservatives are jeopardising Britain’s future ability to reduce climate changing pollution.

“Britain’s climate progress benefitted hugely from Liberal Democrats’ action in Government. The backward climate steps of the last three years are fast becoming a Tory-led environmental scandal.”
