Put planet before profits

OUR fuel bills are rising fast and politicians seem to have little idea what to do about it. Just changing energy suppliers isn’t going to provide a long term fix.

In years to come, coal, oil and gas prices are likely to carry on rising while the cost of renewable energy will fall as long as we invest in infrastructure projects.

What is most worrying is that the banks are quietly investing billions of pounds in dirty coal and fossil fuel projects in the developing world. This will only result in much more pollution, global warming and extreme weather conditions.

We need to refocus on what people and the planet needs and not just on company profits.
