Earlier today Ming Campbell launched the Liberal Democrats’ proposals to make Britain carbon neutral by 2050.
“With these policies the Liberal Democrats have become the first major British party to map out the route to a carbon neutral Britain.
“And the first to plan the way towards a cleaner global environment too.
“Pollution doesn’t respect national boundaries. Climate change is a global problem that requires an international solution.
“Britain should not be a bit player in finding that solution; we should be leading the pack.
“Under our proposals, the United Kingdom would set the green standard for others to reach.”
Further details, including the full policy document detailing the plans which will be debated at the party’s autumn conference, are avaiable on the Liberal Democrat website.
