Green and prosperous

-

BORIS Johnson understand­s that the race to switch to a green economy has nothing to do with sentimenta­l “bunny hugging” but is, in fact, a chance to trigger a technologi­cal boom.

The Prime Minister, who took part in an online Earth Day summit with President Biden yesterday, has no interest in turning his back on progress and modernity.

Going green is not about limiting our freedom to travel or pushing up energy costs. We need to find ways to heat our homes and power our transport systems which are not reliant on finite fuels, which are often found in states run by dictators and are also poisoning our planet.

This newspaper has great green ambitions because we believe the UK can lead the new industrial revolution. We want to see communitie­s that have missed out on prosperity proudly buzzing as prosperous centres of manufactur­ing and innovation.
