Letters – Green Business Goes Lib Dem

Section:

Influential business leaders from green sector back Lib Dems in Thursday’s General Election in a letter to ‘The Steeple Times’

 

Sir

 

The environment has been shut out of this election.

 

Economic growth has provided the world with abundant food, medicine, energy and raw materials. However, unmanaged it is destroying the ecosystem, wiping out fauna, flora, forests and seas. An ecological meltdown will cause economic ruin, political turmoil and threaten the very existence of human civilisation.

 

Air pollution causes 40,000 premature deaths in the UK each year.  With greenhouse gases and habitat depletion, together, they are having a catastrophic effect on our environment, contributing to global climate change, wildlife, crop and forest damage, rising sea levels, floods and haze.  Whole countries could drown under water or starve under drought, driving migration and climate wars.

 

The path to a sustainable future requires the creative power of our best scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs, backed by the courage of politicians to think long term.

 

Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris accords is an act of environmental vandalism on a global scale.  And by refusing to condemn him, Theresa May is aiding and abetting him.

 

Only the Lib Dems combine the ambition to bring forward climate change targets and support for the Paris agreement, with an entrepreneurial approach to investing in cutting edge clean technologies, and commitment to international institutions to enable Britain to be a world leader in protecting the global environment.

 

Britain has been part of the cause.  By supporting the Lib Dems on 8th June, Britain can also be part of the solution.

 

Yours faithfully

  1. I voted Lib Dem but because my local candidate is the right woman for the job. These people, in spite of my never having heard of them, sound like they love their own voices. Boring!
