Caroline calls for Select Committee on Climate Change after "vague" speech by Gove

Responding to Michael Gove's speech on the latest climate change projections, Green Party MP Caroline Lucas said:
 
"These projections paint a devastating picture of what climate breakdown means for the UK if we continue down the path we're on. Michael Gove's vague talk of mitigating the worst impacts of floods, droughts and storms are far from reassuring.
 
"It's increasingly clear the Government isn't going to embark on the urgent economic transformation we need to secure our futures. It's now up to Parliament to create a Select Committee on Climate Change to pile pressure on ministers and chart a course out of this crisis.
 
"Those MPs must urgently begin drafting legislation to impose absolute limits on our use of resources and outlaw wasteful product designs. They must measure the Government’s success according to people's quality of life and the health of our ecosystems – not economic growth. And they must set out binding plans to ensure people can thrive as we reimagine our society."
