A response for Business Green to the Conservative government’s 25 year environment plan.
Molly responds to Theresa May’s speech on the environment and the government’s 25-year plan.
The Tories are trying to rebrand themselves as a green animal loving Party, but they need to see the bigger picture on fracking, renewables and ecology, says Molly in this article for the Guardian.
Molly has accused government ministers of saddling consumers with higher energy bills because they have had their ‘heads stuck in the radioactive sand’ over Hinkley.
With off-shore wind set to produce electricity cheaper than Hinkley ever will, Molly writes for the New Statesman on why politicians on all sides should reject nuclear.
The publication of the World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2017 is a further blow to the nuclear industry.
Molly has issued a challenge to MPs in the South West to unite against Hinkley and in favour of resurrecting previously shelved offshore wind projects.
Following an announcement that energy from offshore wind in the UK is now cheaper than electricity generated from new nuclear, Molly has renewed a call for Hinkley C to be scrapped.
The European Parliament has this week backed a Green initiative which aims to extend the life of consumer products.
Soaring costs and further delays to Hinkley could lower financial returns for EDF and result in consumers being ‘arm-twisted’ into paying even higher prices, Molly has warned.
