Tim Yeo: More radical steps are needed to tackle climate change
Not long before the election a post on Conservative Home suggested that “80-90%” of our party are “just not signed up” to the climate change agenda. This was backed up by a poll of candidates in the 250 most winnable seats, with candidates being asked to rank 19 different policy priorities in order of importance. Britain’s carbon footprint came bottom.
This is why I, a former environment minister and shadow environment secretary, decided to write a new pamphlet on the issue.
Green gold: the case for raising our game on climate change urges David Cameron and the new coalition government to take more radical steps on the issue, and to take the part(ies) with them.....
I also knew from a previous life that going green can bring financial rewards....
