So here are a few ideas for our own Government ... 1/6
Save money and carbon by stopping actively damaging projects like fracking, airport expansion, HS2, new nuclear, road expansion - and spend it on creating hundreds of thousands of jobs through a rapid expansion of renewables #IPCC 2/6
Save even more money and carbon, and create even more jobs by ending subsidies for fossil fuels and taxing them for the damage they cause. Spend that on reducing energy bills through huge nationwide insulation programme.
Clean our air and make our streets safer by boosting support for walking and cycling and building a public transport network fit for the 21st century.
Overhaul agriculture to re-carbonise soil and improve its quality, massively reduce pesticide-use, and shift focus to plant foods, while incentivising people to eat less meat and dairy
Restore nature & biodiversity by major programme of planting woodlands & forests, cutting use of pesticides & creating many new nature-rich green spaces for cities.
