We can provide a reliable energy supply for the UK with 100% renewable energy sources and flexible carbon neutral back up, without fossil fuels, nuclear power, or gambling on the promise of future technology. We can grow the vast majority of the food we need for a healthy, low carbon diet, and manage our land to capture carbon, nurture biodiversity and increase the health and resilience of our ecosystems. We can create 1.5 million jobs, improve our wellbeing, and help ensure the future we leave for our children and generations to come is safe and sustainable.”
