Next Labour government will take radical action on climate change – Rebecca Long-Bailey

Rebecca Long-Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, responding to Met Office reports that the summer heatwave was more likely due to climate change, said:

“Most of us enjoyed the summer’s balmy weather, but it signalled an appallingly dangerous trend. The same climate change that gave us hot weather this year threatens all areas of life from health to transport to food security and flooding. Across the world, it threatens the lives and livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people.

“The next Labour government will take radical action to safeguard the UK and our planet by creating 400,000 skilled green jobs, committing the UK to zero net emissions by 2050, placing a ban on fracking and creating new laws to clean our country’s polluted air.”
