Today, 21 July, the climate litigation charity, Plan B, took a decisive step towards legal action, serving the Government with a Pre-Action Protocol letter over its failure to consider the consequences for the climate emergency of its approach to Covid Recovery.

Tim Crosland, Director of Plan B, said:

The Government can either follow the scientific and economic advice and take a decisive step towards a cleaner, fairer and more sustainable economy, creating a vast number of new jobs; or it can ignore that advice by prioritising its corporate sponsors and locking us into the path to climate breakdown and a future that is grim beyond words.

It seems that Boris Johnson and Dominic Cummings are set on choosing the second option, but we can’t let that happen.”
