Agreed.

It's one thing to have a specific policy e.g. all new cars and buses should be electric. This policy is to too vague.

It's fine for a party to have it as an aspiration but legislation should be specific and targetted. Otherwise we end up with another Foreign Aid solution where you have to spend the money rather than addressing the issue.

This was really the last issue I woke up to since I changed from "a bit of a lefty" a year or so ago.

Climate panic is just another angle of attack to institute socialism as (1) Normal people (i.e. people who would not normally vote green) will be panicked into voting green i.e. far left watermelons (2) This provides a justification for massively increasing taxation for groups the government don't like and redistribute wealth and (3) A reason to introducing authoritarianism to crack down on "climate deniers" (nazi's).

The evidence for a climate disaster just does not exist and the science around this is driven by politics and cronyism.

If you think climate change is the biggest issue we facing then you are simply just not paying attention.

Finally, some sense from Phillip Hammond. These lofty green targets sound fantastic until it f***s up the economy and makes everyone poorer.

How about we invest in developing these and other technologies and then the 'cost' would be outweighed by the 'income' of selling it on and the rise in jobs?

Agreed.

I think the market will take care of a lot of the issues with a little nudge from government. Pushing hard on air quality especially in London will also help the climate change lobby. The added benefit is that pollution can be measured whereas climate change still has it's detractors.

Spot on. The climate change hysteria is driven with a socialist agenda so take down capitalism and put more control to the government. 'Climate change denier' is the new 'racist'.
