We need a referendum - The Net Zero CO2 policy was waved through parliament without any meaningful debate, proper costings or cost benefit analysis. There was no party in the 2019 general election standing in all 650 seats that was against net zero to give voters the choice to vote against it.

The financial and freedom implications of Net Zero have not been explained, along with the fact that the UK produces less than 1% of global man-made CO2 emissions. Even reducing this to zero will have no impact on global man-made CO2 emissions, weather or climate as the big emitters like China (30%) and India have energy policies that will continue to increase global CO2 emissions to 2035 and beyond. A unilateral or limited net zero could just move UK emissions and jobs overseas.

MPs from six select committees of the House of Commons joined together to set up a citizens’ assembly on climate change to look at how the UK should reach its commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The Climate Assembly UK brought together 108 people from across the UK. Together they were representative of the wider UK population in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, educational level, where in the UK they live, whether they live in an urban or rural area, and how concerned they are about climate change.
They worked together to create recommendations to Government.
