Who is the greenest party?

This gallery contains 12 photos.

With elections coming up in a few weeks, we’ve taken a look at the main parties’ election manifestos to see which parties have climate change and environment as priorities.

Our office didn’t have power for most of the morning, which made me realise how reliant on electricity we all are (and the need for solar panels on our office roof!) But what other options does our country have, which is so heavily reliant on coal? And what can you as an individual do? Robert Fischer gives us some advice and looks at the short and long tem options. Continue reading
