Responding to the appointment of Amber Rudd as the new Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, CAT CEO Adrian Ramsay said: “I congratulate Amber Rudd on her appointment.

Manifestometer: The Green Party

With a name like the Green Party it is would be surprising not to find a manifesto that strongly supported action on climate change. But is it enough to stop runaway climate change? The Centre for Alternative Technology explores the Green Party manifesto.  1.Does your party’s climate policy accept the urgency of the evidence as defined by the recent 5th Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessment report, and if implemented, how will it avoid the crucial 2°C average...

Manifestometer: The SNP

Manifestometer: Plaid Cymru, the party of Wales

Comparing climate policies for the 2015 election Plaid Cymru is the party of Wales, a country that was at the forefront of the industrial revolution; possessing massive coal reserves and boasting more than its share of leading industrialists, it helped herald the beginnings of the fossil fuel age. So, how does Plaid Cymru suggest Wales can again help lead the way in tackling climate change? Does your party’s climate policy accept the urgency of the evidence as defined by... Read More ››

Manifestometer: The Liberal Democrats

Comparing climate policies for the 2015 election Shortly after the original launch of CAT’s first Zero Carbon Britain report in 2007, then MP Lembit Opik (representing the constituency where CAT is based) took several copies down to LibDem HQ.  Six weeks later the party launched their policy “Zero Carbon Britain – Taking a Global Lead”. It will be interesting to see after all they have experienced over recent years, how the LibDem commitment to zero carbon has evolved…. 1.Does your... Read More ››

Manifestometer: UKIP

Comparing climate policies for the 2015 election For a party that have as one of their key policy points the abolishment of the Department of Energy and Climate Change, it was always unlikely that UKIP would have the environment and climate change high on the list of priorities. But you never know, given the overwhelming scientific evidence, they might have shifted. So does the UKIP manifesto answer key questions posed by CAT around climate issues? 1.Does your party’s climate... Read More ››
