Liberal Democrats are making Britain greener. In Government we have:
- Set out to create 200,000 new green jobs
- Doubled the amount of electricity from wind turbines
- Got agreement for a 5p plastic bag charge
But we have had to fight for these achievements. The Tories want to get rid of this "green crap".
We need your help to stop them. Please donate today.Donate
Robert Lindsay-Smith signed Do You Like Green Crap? 2013-12-31 00:06:33 +0000Industrialisation has made great improvements to living standards in most countries, but there can be and have been bad effects too. Until recently these have been mostly ignored or dismissed, with the exception of such pollution as was obvious. We need to address all of these problems now, all the unintended consequences of our actions. These include pollution, shortage of natural resources, the destruction of green spaces, ill-health caused by working conditions, and the emission of greenhouse gases. It’s urgent.
Environmental degradation was too high a price to pay for unchecked industrialisation in the UK in the 19th century. The whole world is facing a similar scenario now.1,966 reasons
David Cameron is reported to have recently said we should “get rid of all the green crap”.
Well Liberal Democrats like “green crap”. In fact, we like it so much we are creating 200,000 new green jobs.
