Clive Lewis For Norwich South
Yesterday, I spoke in the House of Commons debate on the UK’s progress towards net-zero carbon emissions.
The Government have continuously failed to take this challenge seriously. Rather, they have slashed solar subsidies, blocked onshore wind, prevented a close-loop reuse and recycling sector, supported fracking, privatised the Green Investment Bank and supported the Heathrow Expansion.
We need a system change to tackle this climate crisis; the green new deal, which is capturing the public imagination, demonstrates that there does not need to be a trade-off between the environment and jobs, or between economic and social justice and the environment to achieve this.
