Experts give their views
In two weeks voters go to the polls in one of the closest-fought and least predictable elections in a generation. Carbon Brief has already pored over the political parties’ manifesto views on climate and energy. But the chance of a multi-party coalition make it hard to extrapolate pre-election commitments into future government action. Carbon Brief asked a range of experts for their views on the implications, in particular:
What are the key climate and energy dividing lines for the election?
How do you see potential election outcomes affecting climate and energy policy, post-election and in the run-up to Paris?
Here are the experts’ responses.
