Patrick Harvie said : “Other parties have made commitments to address this crisis in their manifestos, but their actions do not match their words. Labour, for example, have already dropped their 2030 net-zero promise and have recently opened a coal mine in Cumbria. The Liberal Democrats talk about giving councils new powers to lower emissions, just a month after they voted against exactly that in Holyrood. And the SNP are claiming leadership on this issue while taking money from the oil and aviation giants” External link

He added: "I think we very clearly do need some clarity from the Scottish Government about what's going to happen with the timing of an independence referendum.
