A Green New Deal to tackle the climate and environmental emergency. Action is needed now, not only after the next election. We as a party must support the social movements fighting the climate crisis, from those protesting to local communities already moving to decarbonise their energy systems and wider economy. We must think and act more like a social movement. Labour should give the powers needed to local authorities to allow them to intervene and implement local decarbonisation plans, including support for publicly owned generation and smart grids.
