The energy transition has to be “fair and just” and cannot "decimate jobs", Scotland’s First Minister said during a leaders debate last night.
Labour and the Conservatives will be criticised for creating an “almost environment-free” General Election as the Greens take to the streets to raise concerns.
Green MPs will “hold Theresa May’s feet to the fire” if the Tories win the election, Caroline Lucas will say as her party sets out its key priorities.
The Scottish Greens are “very hopeful” of winning a record number of seats at Holyrood in May’s election, party co-convener Patrick Harvie has said.

The UK oil and gas industry should start decommissioning now in order to allow the north-east to come the global leader in renewable energy, the Scottish Green Party leader said last night.
