Responding to the Scottish Greens announcement today, Ryan Morrison of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland said:

“It’s great to see the Scottish Greens making the case for urgent action to tackle Scotland’s climate emissions while laying out all the benefits this can bring with warmer homes, greener farming and cleaner transport.

“The recent report by the IPCC laid bare the reality of what is needed from developed nations like Scotland. We need to commit to drastically reducing our emissions over the next decade to ensure we limit global warming to 1.5 degrees and avoid irreversible consequences for people and planet.

“We know what we need to do to ensure Scotland plays its part, it’s now time for all parties in the Scottish Parliament to join together to rise to the challenge of the science and improve the ambition of this Climate Bill.”
