Luke Pollard – 2021 Comments on the Climate Crisis

The comments made by Luke Pollard, the Shadow Environment Secretary, on 29 July 2021.

The severe impacts of the climate crisis are happening here and now, putting people, nature, and our economy at risk. But the Tories are failing to meet their emissions reduction targets.

Re-announcing inadequate plans can’t hide the Government’s woeful failure to protect communities and businesses. We need urgent action to reverse this climate and ecological emergency.

Labour would replace the Government’s piecemeal approach with a comprehensive Green Recovery to decarbonise and transform our economy.
