We're Sick of Conservative Complacency on the Climate

There's less than 100 days until COP26.

That's a huge climate summit attended by leaders from across the globe, hosted right here in the UK. It's a chance for the UK to show real leadership in tackling the climate crisis - but Boris Johnson won't take it seriously.

We're sick of years of Conservative complacency on the climate. So today, the Liberal Democrats are launching our own Green Recovery Plan.

Back the Plan

This year alone, the Tories bungled and then scrapped the Green Homes Grant, making heating our homes more pricey and fuel poverty a greater risk. Not only that, they've slashed grants for electric vehicles. That's kept them prohibitively expensive for too many British people.

Have you had enough? Because we have.

Our Green Recovery Plan is what a climate crisis response should look like. It contains provisions to:

🌱 Save our countryside
🏡 Green every home
💨 Clean up our air
🚝 Revolutionise British transport
💡 Kickstart the switch to green energy

Lib Dem Leader Ed Davey says:

"I don't want to watch through my fingers as the PM embarrasses us in front of the world again at COP.

"We need a new direction, and we need it fast - before it's too late. Can I count on your support?"
