How Green are our MLAs?

Genuinely interesting slot from the Politics Show which asked three MLAs to do a video diary for a week on their Green activities, which was subsequently viewed and critiqued by Newton Emerson and Lise Fegan of Friends of the Earth. The verdict? Three committed individuals, but given the cuts in the warm homes scheme by DUP Ministers, and (from Newt’s point of view at least) Sinn Fein’s hostility to the generation of nuclear energy in Ireland, there is little sense that any party in the Assembly has brought forward serious proposals that attempt to tackle climate change in the kings of systematic ways that would make a difference.
