The election on the 12th December should be a Climate Election whatever the media want to tell you.

Come and hear Clive Lewis, Labour Shadow Minister of Sustainable Economics, and Alex Sobel, local candidate and Chair of Labour Environment Group of MPs, run a flash event to discuss the Climate Emergency and Labour’s plans to deal with it.

Labour’s plans for Net Zero Carbon by 2030 and a Green New Deal creating an industrial and social renaissance never before seen in this country. Clive will also talk about his bill with Caroline Lucas on delivering a Green New Deal – https://www.expressandstar.com/news/uk-news/2019/11/12/support-for-green-new-deal-for-climate-and-jobs-but-what-will-it-mean/ and Alex talk about ideas including a frequent flyer tax to deal with runaway emissions in aviation – https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/climate-crisis-aviation-tax-emissions-carbon-tax-labour-party-a9092731.html
