UK Conservatives are embracing a future without coal-fired power stations – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

 

The Dirty Pro- Coal Speeches Abbott gave in Britian had no effect on the enviroment.

As Tony Abbott and other prominent Coalition MPs make the case that Australia should be building new coal-fired power stations, Conservatives in Britain are pushing a very different agenda.

The Tory Government wants to end the use of unabated coal in the UK within seven years, and the policy is being driven by Claire Perry — the cabinet minister responsible for energy policy, who believes environmentalism is not a philosophy exclusively owned by the green-left.

“Conservatism to me is about protecting what you inherit and improving it,” Ms Perry told the ABC.

“So whether it’s making sure the economy is robust for the next generation or whether it’s about stewarding this beautiful environment that we live in, that for me is the essence of my conservatism.”

Conservatives have been at the forefront of action on climate change in Britain for decades.
