“With new studies showing that rainforests are now so stressed that they have become net carbon emitters, the window for cutting carbon consumption is closing more quickly than we thought. It is therefore absolutely vital that the Welsh Government not only debates measures to cut carbon, but quickly puts in place measures which will see a quantifiable reduction in the shortest possible time.”

A tidal lagoon is much more cost effective than a nuclear reactor, and infinitely less damaging. The lagoon will produce zero carbon electricity with no radioactive waste forced on future generations, and very small decommissioning costs. Even the decommissioning of North Sea oil and gas is estimated to be costing taxpayers an outrageous £24 billion. Theresa May must now stop dithering and give the green light to this industry fit for the future.

When built, the Lagoon will put Swansea, and Wales, firmly on the map at the sharp end of tidal power generation. There will be tremendous opportunities for eco- tourism and a much needed morale boost for the whole of Wales."

The Financial Times reports today that the UK faces a bill of £24 billion for shutting North Sea fields. The Wales Green Party is calling for subsidies on all fossil fuels to be removed. Fossil fuel subsidies are the main obstacle to the growth of renewable energy.

The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is unprecedented in its emphasis on how an urgent and rapid transition away from fossil fuels is crucial in order to avoid dangerous climate change. A truly sustainable transport network would be frequent, affordable and clean. The proposed M4 upgrade does not correspond with any of these requirements.”
