RT @mikegalsworthy: Well now... probably not what Priti Patel intended.
Our Prime Minister claims to be 'world-beating' - but on emissions reduction, he's climate-cheating
He may use all the language to suggest he's taking action on climate, but there's a yawning gap between words and delivery
Looking for hope in dark times?
Join me, Brazilian Congresswoman @JoeniaWapichana, US Rep @IlhanMN, Canadian MP @MPJulian + movement leaders @DeirdreShelly @fortuashla @FarzanaJhumu @chilledasad100 to find out what next for the #GreenNewDeal
5pm today! http://bit.ly/3zONsUJ
Good to see Lord Deben pan proposals for new Cumbrian coal mine. “Absolutely indefensible,” “80% of the coal produced will be exported; it’s not going to contribute anything to domestic needs - another example of Britain saying one thing & doing another.” https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/jun/29/government-policy-failures-are-obstacle-to-uk-net-zero-target-advisers-warn
This @theCCCuk report is an utterly damning indictment of Govt climate inaction – in a race against time, we're dawdling in the slow lane
Our PM is criminally negligent, a climate cheat – all talk and no action
You can’t con your way out of a #climateemergency
Today's @theCCCuk report pulls no punches
❌ "major failures in delivery"
❌ "glacial" progress on farming emissions
❌ "shocking gap" on energy efficiency
Far from being world-beating, our PM's not even in the ring
#Cumbriacoalmine fact 2:
Steel experts say this high-sulphur coal has very limited UK use, won't displace a single tonne of Russian imports, & most will be exported abroad
This mine is bad for British business

A £4 billion subsidy for fracking firms - but record bills, spiralling prices & a cost of living crisis for everyone else
The people don't want it, and we don't need it - so why is the Govt pouring money into it? Utterly scandalous use of public funds
Today on #NetZeroDay, I'm calling for an urgent local authority led, street-by-street home insulation programme – a retrofit revolution to get energy bills down, get emissions down, & create hundreds of thousands of jobs in the process
A better world is possible – #justdoit!
RT @EnvironmentAPPG: 🔊🇬🇧Three years ago the UK enshrined net zero into law - it now more important than ever to act

Anglian Water has paid £92 million in profits to shareholders - while Suffolk's beautiful rivers continue to see the dumping of raw sewage
@AdrianRamsay will make a great Suffolk @TheGreenParty MP & force Anglian Water to consign this practice to history
It's 3 years since legislation for #GreenNewDeal took off around the globe!
Delighted to be joining @JoeniaWapichana @MPJulian @IlhanMN + movement leaders from @sunrisemvmt @GNDRising @350_bangladesh with @chilledasad100 to celebrate!

Might sound dry, but in fact very significant. If data on carbon emissions & nature are published *alongside* GDP data, we’ll have better chance of seeing relationship between them. Publishing imported emissions also vital, so we don’t offshore responsibility for UK consumption

It’s bad enough that the PM is stuffing the Lords with billionaire Tory donors - worse, those billionaires are funding climate delay
Clearly any climate pledge uttered from PM’s mouth is pure hypocrisy
HoL Commission must investigate this appointment
Govt wins as N Ireland protocol bill passes 2nd reading: 295 MPs happy to trash international law. Now we have to hope unelected House of Lords will do better than the Commons - what an indictment #desperate
Deeply depressing & speaks volumes about this political moment. Fostering imagination & empathy isn’t a luxury - it’s frankly the only hope for peaceful coexistence on our one precious planet (And yes, I did study literature & yes, it did change my life) https://www.theguardian.com/education/2022/jun/27/sheffield-hallam-university-suspends-low-value-english-literature-degree?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other
Absolute masterclass from Theresa May in demolishing the Government case for trashing international law with its N. Ireland Protocol Bill. Legal test of “necessity” manifestly unmet; stated aims won’t be fulfilled by this Bill; and approach diminishes UK standing in eyes of world
Govt hypocrisy reaches new heights - the agreement they seek to break is exactly the agreement *they* made
And as PM glad-hands #G7 leaders abroad, extolling virtues of rules-based international system, his own Govt is driving coach & horses through rules-based system at home

#Cumbriacoalmine fact 1: West Cumbria Mining offers 500 temporary coal jobs - when a report says we could have 9,000 long-term, high-skilled green local jobs for the future
