Closed petition Hold a referendum to scrap the UK's policy of Net Zero CO2 by 2050

We need a referendum - The Net Zero CO2 policy was waved through parliament without any meaningful debate, proper costings or cost benefit analysis. There was no party in the 2019 general election standing in all 650 seats that was against net zero to give voters the choice to vote against it.

More details

The financial and freedom implications of Net Zero have not been explained, along with the fact that the UK produces less than 1% of global man-made CO2 emissions. Even reducing this to zero will have no impact on global man-made CO2 emissions, weather or climate as the big emitters like China (30%) and India have energy policies that will continue to increase global CO2 emissions to 2035 and beyond. A unilateral or limited net zero could just move UK emissions and jobs overseas.
