Energy and Transport

A Green energy revolution is needed. We must reduce consumption, use energy more efficiently and switch to renewable energies and not nuclear if we want to get a chance to reduce climate change and  the dangerous dependency on imported oil, as well as avoiding a future energy supply crisis.
But we must also rethink the way we get around.  Greens do not expect people to stay at home but we need to be more efficient in what transport modes we use, reducing use of transport if necessary. Greens want to apply the “polluter pays” principle whereby users pay the real costs of transport.
