‘I don’t have a clue what’s going on’: How the UK is becoming a test-bed for climate change

The United Kingdom’s government has been criticised for using its climate change policies to promote the sale of gas to overseas customers and has been accused of misleading the public by claiming that its plans to cut carbon emissions are aimed at reducing pollution.

The Energy and Climate Change Secretary, Sajid Javid, on Wednesday defended the decision, saying it was not the government’s intention to increase energy prices.

“We want to keep our economy strong and that’s why we have introduced this carbon tax,” Mr Javid told the BBC.

He said it would increase energy costs for consumers by up to £1,500 per year, but that would be offset by the increase in consumer spending on other goods.

“This tax is designed to protect our economy,” he said.

“It’s about helping to balance the books, it’s about making sure we get the right policies right for the UK economy.”

But critics have accused Mr Jameron of hypocrisy over the carbon tax, arguing that the Government has consistently advocated for energy efficiency and renewables.

“If you don’t like climate change, don’t buy energy efficient cars or solar panels, you can buy gas and diesel,” said Matthew Goodwin, a campaigner for Friends of the Earth.

Energy policy in the UK has been one of the most hotly debated topics in the recent weeks, with the Prime Minister making clear that he wants to scrap a carbon tax in a bid to stimulate the economy. “

But the UK’s climate change strategy has been designed to push the cheapest energy source to the poorest and most vulnerable people, including the poorest in our society.”

Energy policy in the UK has been one of the most hotly debated topics in the recent weeks, with the Prime Minister making clear that he wants to scrap a carbon tax in a bid to stimulate the economy.

The Prime Minister has also been accused by some of being too cozy with his Conservative party.

Earlier this month, it emerged that the Prime Minster was planning to scrap the UKs carbon price in the coming months.

In a statement to the press, Mr Jajavid said the decision was “a matter for the Prime Ministers Government”.

Our government is making decisions to help create more jobs and create the climate that works for all.”
