Green Liberal Democrats
Tackling #ClimateChange

LibDems Vs Labour Vs The Green Party

The Liberal Democrats propose:

An emergency ten-year programme of action to reduce UK greenhouse gas emissions by more than half by 2030 – minimising the UK’s impacts on the climate as fast as possible.

A comprehensive plan to decarbonise every sector of the economy and get to net zero by 2045.This covers all sectors: power, heat, transport, aviation, industry, and farming and land use.

A plan not only for what to do but how to do it – including reforming regulation and frameworks for finance and investment, skills, innovation and industrial support, and reshaping the institutions of British government, central and local.

Without these three elements, no plan for net zero is credible. As the IFS said, ‘There is no value in politicians simply competing on targets. They need to spell out the policies that will actually be required to meet the targets and be clear about how the immediate costs will be met.’

We do this; the other parties don’t.

Liberal Democrats hit the streets in Elloughton

Despite the wind and rain, Linda Johnson and her team were out delivering leaflets to launch her campaign today. Linda said: ‘There was no sign of David Davis though I understand there was a small gathering of people who had paid a tiny amount to see the head of the Brexit Company. As the Brexit Company aren’t standing in Haltemprice and Howden, it seemed odd that he was here!

Flooding in the UK as the River Don breaks its banks, flooding in Venice as it experiences its highest ever tides. As sea-levels are expected to rise at least 19inches in the next 50 years, there will be more flooding. The East Riding of Yorkshire Council is building massive lagoons with EU money to hold thousands of gallons of water to help prevent floods and the Liberal Democrats are promising huge investment in more flood defences. It’s too late now to stop massive #climatechange but adopting a green lifestyle to help mitigate it is vital. So far no-one seems to be making a link between climate change and floods. Why not?

17 months ago, this man stood down as Brexit Secretary. He had just one key responsibility – to get us out of the EU and he failed. Dominic Cummings, Boris Johnson’s own advisor, described him as ‘thick as mince, lazy as a toad and vain as Narcissus’. Why do his constituents keep voting him in? Perhaps this time they will vote for real change and vote Liberal Democrats
