Gullible how? Labour produced a very good Climate change policy in 2008.

Many good Labour policies were lost due to a change of government brought on by a worldwide financial crisis.
Blame the US Sub Prime market.

Interesting reading. You will note it was not Labour's idea.

Jeremy Corbyn has had 400 chances to ask about climate change at Prime Minister’s Questions since the 2017 General Election, but not taken a single one.The Labour Party has not held a single Opposition Day debate on the environment or climate change since the last election, until yesterday.In 2015, Corbyn called for coal to be continued to be used, despite its hugely damaging impact on the environment. Meanwhile the UK Government was working to establish the Powering Past Coal Alliance…Corbyn was criticised by his own backbenchers for advocating re-opening coal mines in South Wales.Corbyn has long opposed nuclear power.His Shadow Chancellor would end nuclear power within ‘the first 100 days of a Labour government.’ – This would mean the UK had no option but to rely on its emergency capacity, which is far dirtier…Labour MPs called on the government to keep coal beyond 2025.Not to mention every step of the way voting against the market mechanisms that are actually driving down the cost of renewable energy.

Thanks to Guido

Our plastic addiction is killing whales, turtles, and other marine wonders -- and harming communities where plastic trash is dumped. As citizens from around the world, we call on you to support Norway’s proposal to end irresponsible exports of plastic waste to developing countries that cannot process it.

Where I live, we have on bus that comes hourly. The service is soon to be cut to two-hourly. There are soon to be a thousand families in our " Village". Most seem to have relocated with young families, for a step on the ladder, fresh air, and better schools than Birmingham. A great number still work there, a 40 minute plus drive in the rush hour.

Best of luck with that, when twats like Jeremy Vine have their way, and we all live in the new eco-Nirvarna, and have to cycle to work.

The question to be asked is Why aren't good schools and housing available to these people in Birmingham?

Who runs the Council they are moving into?

How does local government develop housing and schools projects without funding?

The gushing praise from the new "Captain Planet" Corbyn, Emma Thompson, The Greens, and all the rest for the heroic actions of a young British soldier who gave his life protecting African wildlife is ............deafening.

Perhaps if he had been Swedish ?

Shouldn't the debate be about how we save the planet?

We can TRY to "save the planet" in many ways. Emissions etc is one way but the whole world has to commit to it and take immediate action to benefit the future generations for the long term, the UK has tried to kick start things by being a front runner in this but the rest of the world seems to be stuttering along applying lip service but doing nothing as positive as the UK has tried so far. Hence this Extinction Rebellion should NOT be blocking roads etc with boats and God knows what else when the UK is trying to start a positive response and commitment to doing so. Perhaps these feckers can go to Berlin, Paris, Washington, Peking and Madrid and do the same thing? That might see them locked up for some time..:-)

This is the sort of tragic thing that their selfish protests cause from time to time:

It depends if governments back up their words with correct actions that match those words.

This current UK Government scores high with words but very low with its actions.

That's nothing new in all current policy, in all departments.

Any chance to Tory bash hey.

Cameron introduced punniative taxes on our coal fired power stations - way about those agreed with the EU to show that we were 'more committed than they wus'...this just caused the early demise of those power stations as they were not playing on a level playing field...but hey that's green economics for you knocker.

I suppose you would like us to do the same with the rest of our industry would you so you could bash the government ad infinitum about the ensuing job loses- pathetic.

If we wanted to do anytihing constructive we should arrange a 'green travel special' to china (boat not plane of course & tents not hotel accomodation) and make it free for a month to all the climate protesters who want to go and protest there- we could send that Swedish 15 year old as their leader

That would show them we mean business.and would be a win -win situation ...sending those that really want to make change to the country where that step change would make the most difference.

I bet there would be plenty of empty seats on that particular green crusade...

Rather than Tory bash on clean air I would commend the new Prime Minister for his stance on Heathrow Airports new runway.

NO

I believe the key World organizations, particularly the one based in New York should grow some balls and dictate to the multi nationals and individual nation abusers.

The World is crying out for stronger better leadership.

So should the USA go as far as attacking the likes of China then?

No but there is a very strong case for sanctioning Brazil if they fail to stop the abuse of the Amazon Rainforest. Their new President could be more of a threat to humanity than Trump.

Or the EU could , of course, just revoke the recent trade agreement with the South Americas to show that they really are 'green'.

i wouldn't hold my breath.

You may have to if we continue to ignore the devastation of the rain forest.

Maybe in time the poor will be given a hundred oxygen cylinders, while the rich are given a few hundred thousand.

How many gulps a day can you live on?

No idea.
Strange though because in an increasingly corrupt UK the Labour party should be the standard bearers of quality of life for all.

Exactly, and that they are not is, in my view, an indication of Mr Corbyn's leadership ability.
