Cameron is keeping the nation hooked on fossil fuels
Commenting on David Cameron’s speech at the Conservative party conference today, Friends of the Earth's Executive Director, Andy Atkins said:
“With scientists warning that we’re racing towards a climate catastrophe, the Prime Minister gave no indication that he’s going to take his foot off the accelerator.
“Cameron’s dangerously muddled energy policy is keeping the nation hooked on increasingly costly fossil fuels, driving away thousands of jobs in Britain’s renewable energy sector and undermining efforts to tackle global warming.
“Investors need Government clarity to develop Britain’s huge wind, solar and marine potential – which is why we need a clean power target in the Energy Bill, currently going through Parliament.”
