What a shambles. A popular scheme that could’ve helped millions of draughty homes - gone. Instead, jobs have been lost & we continue to pay over the odds to heat our homes. The govt. must guarantee long term funding now to avoid further embarrassment. theguardian.com/environment/20…

Every year in the UK, around 40,000 people die prematurely due to air pollution. Young or old, we all need clean air to breathe. #LTNs are a great way to cut pollution and we hope @CamdenCouncil will continue to support these in 2021! #TransformTransport @GreenpeaceUK

You wouldn’t ask a tobacco company for health advice. We shouldn’t be asking #FossilFuel companies for climate advice. For too long, fossil fuel companies have influenced politicians & benefited from their decisions. Time to #EndPollutersPower! RT & sign: gwitness.org/3dhQZQ5

A reduction in VAT for green goods and services would help turbo charge a green recovery. It'd also help counter the broken promises on climate action that we've seen from the government - such as the recent scrapping of the Green Homes Grant scheme. independent.co.uk/climate-change…

On the same day that France halts the expansion of an airport in Paris - for being incompatible with climate commitments - similar plans at Leeds Bradford Airport are given the thumbs up without a long-promised climate and aviation policy in sight.🤦‍♀️ yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/news/politics/…6
I've been asked whether @Shell's new #NetZero plan is credible. Not at all IMO. @bp's last year, though imperfect, was credible for simple reason that it committed to reduce oil & gas extraction. Shell instead relies on VAST use of forests to soak up its emissions
