Churches should take the lead in the green energy revolution, since the Government has now abandoned that cause. That’s the call from Christian conservation charity A Rocha UK – who say they are ‘dismayed’ with the July budget.
Chancellor George Osborne’s statement wiped out subsidies for offshore wind farms, blocked low carbon power projects, increased road tax on eco-friendly cars and ended investment schemes in renewable energy. That was in addition to the recently announced sale of shares in the Green Investment Bank.
Reeling from the shock of such decisions, A Rocha UK is encouraging churches to continue to take a lead in promoting alternative energy. ‘Churches and communities can still invest in renewables, disinvest in fossil fuels and persuade their MPs to take a strong line on climate,’ said Conservation Director Andy Lester (pictured).
