Jeremy Corbyn calls for public ownership to combat ‘threat of climate catastrophe’

JEREMY CORBYN called this weekend for public ownership of Britain’s energy system to help combat the “threat of climate catastrophe.”

He accused the government of having left a “trail of environmental destruction” and lampooned Environment Secretary Michael Gove for fashioning himself as an “eco-warrior.”

Speaking at a Labour event on alternative models of ownership, the Labour leader told attendees on Saturday that measures as radical as those taken by the 1945 government under Clement Attlee to rebuild Britain after WWII are needed to tackle climate change.
