Commenting on Extinction Rebellion protesters gluing themselves to the Lib Dems’ electric campaign bus in Streatham, Liberal Democrat Shadow Chancellor Ed Davey said:
“It is great to see our campaign creating such a buzz around tackling the climate emergency. Extinction Rebellion have played an important role, alongside the school climate strikes, in putting this crucial issue front and centre of this election.
“We know there is no planet B. The UK needs a government that will put protecting our planet at the heart of its ambitions.
“The Liberal Democrats have bold plans to achieve net-zero by 2045. Under a Liberal Democrat government we will generate 80% of our electricity from renewables by 2030, insulate every home, ensure every car sold is electric and plant 60 million trees a year.
“Only the Liberal Democrats have a plan to build a brighter future for our planet.”
