How Cameron, Clegg & Miliband Stitched Us Up In 2015

By Paul Homewood

 

We often lose sight of the fact of how the decarbonisation agenda  is now so firmly embedded in British politics.

But, as Carbon Brief revealed,the electorate was done up like a kipper six years ago:

Over the weekend, the UK’s three main political leaders pledged to tackle climate change after the next election, whatever the outcome.

The Conservative’s David Cameron, Labour’s Ed Miliband and the Liberal Democrat’s Nick Clegg agreed to work towards a legally-binding global climate deal, to agree new UK emissions-cutting goals and to phase out unabated coal-fired power.

Carbon Brief assesses the significance of the unusual joint pre-election pledge.

Cross-party pledge

There are three parts to the  party leaders’ pledge, published on Saturday after months of behind-the-scenes negotiations brokered by NGOs, including Green Alliance, Christian Aid and the Women’s Institute.

The leaders agree:

  • To seek a fair, strong, legally binding, global climate deal which limits temperature rises to below two degrees.

  • To work together, across party lines, to agree carbon budgets, in accordance with the Climate Change Act.

  • To accelerate the transition to a competitive, energy efficient low-carbon economy and to end the use of unabated coal for power generation.

Whichever party or leader is in power, we would still be following the same suicidal policies.
