Caroline Lucas says we need to go on war footing
BRITAIN NEEDS A "WAR FOOTING" TO TACKLE CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENERGY CRISIS.
The New Home Front is launched by Green MP Caroline Lucas, with a report written by Andrew Simms, Fellow of nef (new economics foundation) and author of The New Economics. Along with experts on climate change, food and community organisation, the new initiative looks at how Britain finally mobilised in the approach to World War Two, in order to see what can be learned to help with the urgent threat posed by climate change and the end of cheap, abundant oil.
