Love this. Courtesy of my son on Facebook. (He doesn't do Twitter: "it's for old people" apparently).

2015 - Banned onshore wind projects 2015 - Scrapped warm homes standards 2016 - Shafted solar energy 2017 - Flogged off Green Investment Bank 2018 - Forced fracking on local communities 2019 - Refused to meet the climate strikers That is this Government’s true record on climate.

I'm afraid, Prime Minister, that giving the go ahead to a 3rd runway at Heathrow, going "all out for fracking", allowing new open-cast coal, scrapping zero-carbon homes and solar subsidies, banning on-shore wind, and failing to support tidal power, is not doing "what we can".

I'm guessing BBC won't name them, so: "Exxon knew of climate change in 1981, email says – but it funded deniers for 27 more years"

Lots of arrests at Oxford Circus, but the dancers keep on dancing and the singers keep on singing. It's a really great atmosphere. We are trying to stage this rebellion with as much love, and light, and good humour as possible.

Emma Thompson has a very important message for you. Now is the time for ordinary people to stand up and act now. We have to come together and save our home. We have to fight against extinction. Come to London on the 15th of April. Come to stay. Come to rebel.

I have just declared an environment and climate emergency in the House of Commons on behalf of and challenged Michael Gove to back our declaration. While councils nationwide are declaring climate emergencies this Conservative government just refused to do so.

Perhaps the most dangerous misconception about the climate crisis is that we have to “lower” our emissions. Because that is far from enough. Our emissions have to stop if we are to stay below 1,5/2°C warming. That rules out most of today’s politics. Including airport expansions..

The amount to be spent on the subsidy of Newquay-Heathrow flights is £3.4 million over 4 years. Back in 2014 the government agreed to pay £2.5 million over 4 years, plus £300,000 from Cornwall County Council. So a total of £6.2 million over 8 years. Bonkers use of public funds
