Ex­eprt :We need bold ac­tion now

Llanelli Star - - NEWS -

“WE need bold, rad­i­cal ac­tion now, if we are to come any­where near re­duc­ing our emis­sions enough by 2050, to slow down global warm­ing and tackle cli­mate change.”

That was the mes­sage spelled out by Alan White­head MP, Labour’s Shadow En­ergy and Cli­mate min­is­ter, when he spoke to an au­di­ence in Kid­welly.

Mr White­head ex­plained: “We need a step change in the pace of in­vest­ment in re­new­able en­ergy sources, in or­der to meet, not just the gap left as we switch off our old coal-fired power sta­tions and grad­u­ally move off gas, but also to meet the in­creased de­mand for elec­tric­ity that we will see as we switch to run­ning more of our trans­port on elec­tric­ity.”
