Climate Change

As will be clear to regular readers of this blog I have a real concern about the future of our planet. I am really pleased to support the policies proposed by Labour to protect the environment. The Scottish Labour Party led the way in the Scottish Parliament on climate change - pushing the Scottish Government from their limited ambition on carbon reductions to the most radical targets in the world at 42%. I am particularly keen on Labour's Green New Deal. This is a scheme which would involve installing small scale renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency measures in 10,000 homes and businesses in Scotland. I hope that these proposals will deliver jobs in Dundee as well.
