Christine Jar dine should include the costs of a Climate Emergency in her next article as it would highlight the reasons why all voters receive from Holyrood is empty words ( Scotsman, 7 September ).
The brutal truth is that the Scottish economy can not afford both independence with years of austerity and meet the goals of COP26.
The Green Revolution to insulate homes, fit heat pumps and replace gas cookers comes with a £150 billion price tag. A four-fold increase in current renewable capacity to charge electric vehicles is a further £180 billion cost to the taxpayer and the 400 per cent increase in energy bills adds £4,000 a year to every household in Scotland a sex perienced by certain residents in Falkirk..
Christine Jardine can therefore show that May 2021 is a binary choice for all Scots. Choose Indy Ref 2 with its austerity and failure to meet COP26 or vote to retain the union, save the planet and save lives
