CAT analyses climate policies ahead of election

With a week to go until the General Election, the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) has released its analysis of party political manifestos, comparing parties’ climate and energy policies to see if they have what it takes to tackle climate change.

The at-a-glance table shows party responses to six crucial questions used to identify whether parties have based their proposals on climate science and if they go far enough in keeping us below a temperature rise of two degrees.

Adrian Ramsay, CAT’s CEO, said: “It is vital that the government that emerges from this coming election sets a pathway to a zero-emissions society and demonstrates clear and strong leadership – both at home and internationally – in tackling the most urgent issue of our time.”
