Climate change

March was the third warmest month (globally) on record and the second warmest winter ever (again globally - I haven't forgotten how cold it was here!). The climate scientists at East Anglia have been cleared of claims that they were trying to mislead people.

We have very little time left to stop runaway climate chaos. We cannot afford to have politicians who campaign against windfarms or call for lower fuel prices. We need politicians who want alternatives to oil - which means more public transport, more insulation of homes and businesses, less cars, less road freight and renewable energy. Reducing tax on petrol would be a pointless short term measure that would damage our ability to decarbonise.

The Lib Dems claim they are green but merely scratching the surface shows they are not. Only the Green Party is.
