Climate change is an urgent threat

Today, the Liberal Democrats have announced £100 billion investment to avert climate change and clean up our economy. Our air will be cleaner, our homes will be warmer, our world will be safer from climate risks like fire and flood.

And the early benefits? Right now, 8% of homes in Oxfordshire are fuel poor - families can't afford to heat their homes properly. Rural areas are worst off, with a £600 gap between the cost of bills and what households can afford to pay.

To tackle climate change, we must radically improve energy efficiency, so today's announcement includes a swift programme to insulate our homes, beginning with the people who need it the most. In future, we will make sure that all new homes are quality homes, built to zero-carbon standards.
