WWF responds to the Government plan to phase out coal

Responding to the publication of the coal phase out plan, Isabella O’Dowd, Climate and Energy Specialist at WWF said:

“It is great that UK Government has taken on board many of our recommendations to finally end coal, hitting this dirty industry where it hurts, by cutting off their subsidies.

“The UK Government could show more ambition by increasing their support for renewable energy which will further reduce the carbon dioxide and pollutants pumped into our air from our unclean, decrepit coal power stations.”
