Green groups criticise government’s environmental policies


 

A group of environmental organisations has called on the government to clarify its approach to growing the low-carbon economy, warning that it had so far “watered down or scrapped” 10 green policies. In a public letter to prime minister David Cameron, the groups––including the RSPB, WWF-UK, Friends of the Earth, and National Trust––said that only one of the changes (removing subsidies for new onshore wind) had been in the Conservatives’ election manifesto, and that as yet the government had delivered “no positive new measures that would restore the health of the environment”. The government was urged to resolve the “contradictions” between its rhetoric and actions.
