Alan McDonald ~ Green Party Candidate for Calder Ward May 2019

Alan McDonald

Climate change is the single issue that dwarfs everything else.  The youth strikers have told us so. Are we the last generation? one of their banners asked starkly at Extinction Rebellion in London. But their spontaneous action fills me with hope.  Greens are still at the forefront of action, alongside others of like mind - from slowing the flow into the Upper Calder - to protesting in Parliament Square.  We need a Green New Deal, a universal basic income: policies Greens have long proposed that are now being talked about in mainstream politics. We need detailed local and national programmes to cut emissions and consumption, so that we put into practice what’s needed to meet the ‘climate emergency’ our local councils have acknowledged.  We have to act now.
