Most People Back Net Zero – But Not When It Impacts Their Finances

Sam Hall, the director of the Conservative Environment Network, a group that includes MPs and peers, told PoliticsHome that he does not think there are equivalent environmental dividing lines in seats across the country and that “more generally” he believes “the public wants to see action on climate change”.

“They want the politicians to find fair and affordable ways to achieve those targets, rather than dialling down climate ambition,” he said.

“I think the public's perception of the Conservative Party would be damaged if it was seen to be weakening its overall climate commitments.”
