This is the environment election
By Carol Jarvest
A great evening with Baroness Parminter and our Mid Sussex candidate Robert Eggleston last week to learn how the Lib Dems can tackle the environment issues facing us.
The Lib Dem manifesto sets out a number of key pledges to deal with climate change including generating 80% of our electricity from renewables by 2030, the retro-fit of 26 million homes by 2030 to the highest energy standards, planting 60 billion trees a year and ensuring all new cars sold are electric by 2030.
Both Baroness Kate Parminter and Robert Eggleston have successfully campaigned as environmental activists in the use of single-use plastics and the introduction of the charge on plastic bag usage.
