Climate change is one of the most pressing challenges of our times. We need to eliminate carbon emissions and move towards a zero-carbon economy as quickly as possible. Our future depends on it.
In Parliament, the Liberal Democrats have long pressed the government to invest more in low-carbon and zero-carbon energy sources. As MP for Cambridge, Julian Huppert led the fight against fracking and championed low-carbon energy technologies and energy efficiency. He also co-sponsored a Nature Bill to safeguard wildlife, protect access to natural green spaces and to introduce education on the natural environment to the national curriculum.
Liberal Democrats have 5 key priorities for tackling climate change and protecting the environment: Zero Carbon, Zero Waste, Green Homes, Green Transport and putting nature at the heart of government decision-making.
