Take immediate action to reduce emissions by 45% from 2010 levels by 2030.
The government must take immediate measures to limit global temperature rise to 1.5C, as advised by the UN's recent climate report. To achieve this, emissions need to be cut drastically in the next 12 years. Meanwhile, the government has been backing out of policies which achieve these targets.
Some actions should include:
-Boost renewable energy sources to 85% by 2050- (suggested in the UN report).
-Quickly phase out fossil fuels, especially coal.
-Reduce our dependance on gas and oil.
-Reinstate previous subsidies for electric/hybrid cars and ban the sale of fossil fuel cars within the decade.
-Expand and encourage the use of public transport across the UK.
-Encourage individuals to act and educate the public on sustainable living.
-Invest in technology to take CO2 from the air.
