A Labour government would lead a “green revolution” if elected to
government, creating 400,000 new jobs and cutting the UK’s greenhouse gas
emissions to zero by 2050, Jeremy Corbyn will pledge today.
In his speech closing the Labour conference in Liverpool, Mr Corbyn will
commit to a sevenfold increase in offshore wind power and to double onshore
wind, treble solar power and make all homes in the UK energy efficient by
2030, bringing “skills and security to communities held back for too long”.
Promising “radical solutions” to combat growing anger at economic
inequality, the Labour leader will attack “the political and corporate
establishment” for having strained every sinew to bail out and prop up the
system that led to the crash in the first place”.
