    On the climate change summit in Paris, the Liberal Democrats have questioned how Theresa May has the nerve to show her face.

    Liberal Democrat spokesperson on energy and climate change, former minister Lynne Featherstone, said:

    “I don’t know how Theresa May has the front to show her face.

    “Her record on the environment is a disgrace. She has failed to take the ambitious steps needed to de-carbonise our economy and protect our planet from the devastating effects of climate change.

    “We will not meet the targets set out in the Paris Agreement without a far more radical plan, and she must know that.

    “In the last two years the Conservatives have consistently undermined the progress made on the environment, by slashing subsidies for renewables, ending the Green Deal and selling off the Green Investment Bank.

    “Unless there is far more investment in renewables, cutting-edge green technologies and the development of green finance initiatives, we will not see the environmental benefits or the economic growth from this sector that we desperately need. The government needs to re-introduce zero-carbon home standards and frankly show some balls on carbon storage and capture.”
