Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Alex Sobel: ...wind in England? Why is the new solar smart export not guaranteeing surety of income or contracts? Why are we seeing solar projects being cancelled right across the country? Why are we not seeing a fracking ban? The flipside of that is demand. Why are we not seeing a big roll-out of super insulation across the country? Why are so many homes still leaky? That is just in one sector, but in...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (17 Oct 2019)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: aware I am being looked at with some trepidation, arising from the knowledge that I am bringing into this House an unfamiliar kind of politics: the politics of Extinction Rebellion, of the anti-fracking stalwarts at Preston New Road and Misson Springs, and of the tree protection groups in my home city. I have been reminded of the words of a senior councillor in Sheffield who, when I...

Business of the House (17 Oct 2019)

Valerie Vaz: ....] We have the Environment Bill next week. We have had earthquakes, and Cuadrilla has begun removing equipment from its site.

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (14 Oct 2019)

Geraint Davies: too inexpensive. If it cost more to buy a plastic bottle than to get a reusable one, people would obviously not buy plastic ones. On climate change itself, it is imperative that we move against fracking. The reality is that any extraction that emits more than 2% methane is worse than coal. Methane is about 85 times worse than carbon dioxide for global warming, and satellite imagery...

Government Plan for Net Zero Emissions — [James Gray in the Chair] (8 Oct 2019)

Geraint Davies: ...achievement, when it is not. The latest prediction, given by Nature last year, was 1.5° change by 2030, not 2040. That is why we need to up our game to 2030 ourselves. The Government go ahead with fracking, which generates 5% of methane emissions. Methane is 83 times worse than CO2 for global warming, making it worse than coal. We should stop fracking now. The Government stopped onshore...

Review of Investigative and Scrutiny Committees (Liaison Committee Report) - Motion to Agree (3 Oct 2019)

Lord Lipsey: getting the monopoly of the big four accountants looked at and dealt with, in a way which I do not believe would have happened without that report. Other reports—I think of the one on fracking—put forward an absolutely unassailable position on the desirability of controlled fracking, which has of course been completely ignored by the ideologues who are opposed to any such thing....

Paul Wheelhouse: ..., our cautious evidence-led approach to the future of unconventional oil and gas development, including coal-bed methane extraction and hydraulic fracturing—the latter being commonly known as fracking—has ensured that we have reached a policy decision that is fit for purpose.

Mr Mark Ruskell: ...on its policies for fossil fuel extraction including unconventional oil and gas. There has been a welcome change in tone from the First Minister, but while we still wait for a legally watertight fracking ban to be delivered, the Government’s policies on fossil fuels cannot exist in a silo away from the climate plans. The need for transition has to be addressed in the heart of those...

Deferred Divisions: Early Parliamentary General Election (4 Sep 2019)

Caroline Lucas: ..., I am one of those who absolutely wants to do that, not least because this is a Government who are not only doing nowhere near enough to tackle the climate crisis but actively exacerbating it with fracking, fossil fuel subsidies and so on. This is also a Government who have the arrogance to claim that a no-deal Brexit will just be “bumps in the road”. How dare they? They might just be...

Summer Adjournment (25 Jul 2019)

Cat Smith: ...have hit 39 degrees, knowing that we have caused great damage to the planet we live on is unavoidable.

Priorities for Government (25 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...? This is a phoney threat about a fake pot of money, made by the Prime Minister. We also face a climate emergency, so will the Prime Minister take the urgent actions necessary?

Will he back our solar industry and onshore wind—so devastated over...
