But mis­ery guts Green MP says we’re all gonna die

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

GREEN party politi­cian Caro­line Lu­cas says the warmer tem­per­a­tures are con­cern­ing.

The MP said: “I like spend­ing an after­noon in the sun­shine as much as any­one.

“But it’s im­pos­si­ble to shake the feel­ing that this isn’t right. Af­ter last year’s un­prece­dented global heat­wave and last month’s deadly tem­per­a­tures in Aus­tralia, our base­line per­cep­tion of what’s nor­mal is shift­ing.

“We are liv­ing through cli­mate breakdown and, in­stead of tak­ing ur­gent ac­tion, min­is­ters carry on as if noth­ing has changed.

“The gov­ern­ment must de­clare a cli­mate emer­gency and in­tro­duce a ‘Green New Deal’ to pro­vide a green job to ev­ery­one who wants one and trans­form our econ­omy to pre­vent cli­mate catastrophe.”
