The Prime Minister has announced a new approach to tackling one of the biggest long-term challenges we face: climate change.
The debate about climate change is stuck between two extremes. On the one hand, there are those who want to deny climate change or abandon Net Zero altogether because the costs are too high. On the other, there are those who want to go further and faster with no regard to the cost to people’s lives or how much the UK has already achieved compared to others.
The Prime Minister has now announced a new plan to change this debate and forge a credible path to reach Net Zero by 2050 which maintains public consent and is transparent about the choices involved.
The plan means a more pragmatic, proportionate and realistic approach to meeting Net Zero that eases the burden on working people. It also includes measures to increase investment in our energy infrastructure and speed up an increase in capacity on the national grid, which together will help us secure our energy supply and increase clean energy for the future.
