#IPCC report says limiting warming to 1.5 degrees will require an industrial transition unprecedented in scale - but that it’s possible, if the political will is there - and that the wider opportunities and benefits are huge

So here are a few ideas for our own Government ... 1/6
Advice to Government:

Save money and carbon by stopping actively damaging projects like fracking, airport expansion, HS2, new nuclear, road expansion - and spend it on creating hundreds of thousands of jobs through a rapid expansion of renewables #IPCC 2/6
More advice to Government:

Save even more money and carbon, and create even more jobs by ending subsidies for fossil fuels and taxing them for the damage they cause. Spend that on reducing energy bills through huge nationwide insulation programme.

#IPCC 3/6
And a bit more:

Clean our air and make our streets safer by boosting support for walking and cycling and building a public transport network fit for the 21st century.

#IPCC 4/6
And this one’s really important:

Overhaul agriculture to re-carbonise soil and improve its quality, massively reduce pesticide-use, and shift focus to plant foods, while incentivising people to eat less meat and dairy

#IPCC 5/6
Final bit of advice for Government (for now!)

Restore nature & biodiversity by major programme of planting woodlands & forests, cutting use of pesticides & creating many new nature-rich green spaces for cities.

What’s not to like?

So please - just do it

#IPCC 6/6
