Climate EmergencyTackling the Climate Crisis

I thought it would be useful to have direct access to the Liberal Democrat Policy Paper relating to the Climate Crisis on the Green Lib Dem website - so here it is.... https://rb.gy/49c9c2

For those in a hurry... Here's the Summary from the document

Summary
Liberal Democrat key priorities for tackling the climate emergency:
 Set ambitious targets for reducing UK greenhouse gas emissions by 75
per cent by 2030 and to net zero by 2045 at the latest.
 Carry out an emergency programme of action to reduce greenhouse
gas emissions from all UK buildings to near-zero by 2030, cutting fuel
bills and ending fuel poverty.
 Accelerate the development of renewable power, reaching at least 80
per cent of electricity generation by 2030 and more thereafter.
 Encourage the rapid take-up of electric vehicles by ending the sale of
new diesel and petrol cars and small vans by 2030.
 Plant 60 million trees a year to remove carbon from the atmosphere,
and improve health and the rural and urban environment.
 Stop Brexit and work closely with the UK's European and global
partners to raise global climate ambition.
 Decarbonise finance and investment, requiring companies and
financial institutions to implement climate targets.
 Integrate climate objectives into the heart of national and local
government, establish Citizens' Climate Assemblies and set up a Just
Transition Commission to ensure no one loses out.
