This is from an email to Green Party Members yesterday.
It is such a shame and a tragedy that – for various reasons – the green political movement in the UK has made so few inroads into mainstream power and media.
“Yesterday’s report by the Committee on Climate Change found that the government is unprepared to deal with the effects of climate change. It is predicted that global warming will hit the UK with deadly heatwaves, more flooding and water shortages. Meanwhile we’re still filling the oceans with plastic, and employing disastrous farming methods that are destroying our soils and wildlife.
The country is burning, Robert Owain. We are in a state of crisis.
This is all being buried under Brexit headlines. As the increasingly farcical spectacle that is modern day British politics continues to unfold, we cannot forget that there are still injustices to be fought. Right now. Today.”
