Had the privilege, together with other co-authors of the Green New Deal - Colin Hines, Jeremy Leggett and Tony Juniper – of addressing the annual conference of the Green Party yesterday. It was a moving and historic event. The Greens have finally come to their senses and elected a leader – and a brilliant one at that – Caroline Lucas.
Caroline is a principled, savvy person – just the sort of leader the country needs to deal with the greatest security threat in our history – the potentially catastrophic impacts of climate change. Look here for her speech.….which happily for us, included an endorsement of the Green New Deal.
