Greenpeace calls for more low carbon funding

Greenpeace calls for more low carbon funding
The chancellor of the exchequer must support the Department for Energy and Climate Change if the UK is to meet its low carbon targets.

That is according to Joss Garman, a campaigner at environmental group Greenpeace, who said that a "step change" is needed in politics.

Earlier this week, a report from the Committee on Climate Change suggested that the transition to a low carbon economy needs to be sped up.

Measures including investing in greener technologies and encouraging consumers and businesses to reduce emissions are necessary to avert climate change, the study warned.

"If ministers follow the committee's advice, there's no reason to think the proposed reductions are unrealistic," commented Mr Garman.

"That's why we need a step change in politics. If we change the politics we can make the UK competitive in a low carbon world and, most important of all, enable this country to play its part in beating climate change."

But just as well it would be if they were to cease to invest in technologies posing as "Green" when in fact - in point of fact - they are further damage of the same variety - "Windfarms", it's about time they realised that the number of people they fool, just like the polar ice, is diminishing !!

'Powertree EooD, Nikiup, Veliko Turnovo, Bulgaria' - I have to completely disagree with you. In light of the enormous challenges we face from Climate Change, Energy and Resource Security, we need all options, and I struggle to understand what you have against wind farms... of course wind is not the only solution however it is part of the solution and just because you appear to have invented an alternative wind energy solution, in the long-run it is not helpful for you to lobby against wind farms because they are a different approach from yours!

You have to be realistic - we need all the low carbon power that we can get - and wind farms are an absolutely essential part of the mix. Even with all the low carbon options we have available, the challenges we face are immense - and removing any is short sighted and not helpful.
