Corbyn gets the Green New Deal

Posted on

Jeremy Corbyn did a shadow Queen’s speech yesterday. I was pleased that he had this to say:

And Labour will ban fracking, roll out a street-by-street insulation programme and fit solar panels on 1.75 million roofs, double large-scale solar, remove barriers to onshore wind and ensure every single new house built is a zero carbon home.

I think he’s been reading the Green New Deal Group’s 30 million more efficient priorities by 2030 plan.

We need that commitment. It does not solve the climate crisis. But it will help, a lot.
