Environment and Energy
The natural beauty of Scotland, its flora and fauna, should be conserved.
Measures to tackle carbon emissions must be practical, sustainable and carefully costed.
Debate in this area should be led by expert opinion, accompanied by intelligent analysis, open to diverse views, and not dictated by activists and protestors.
Every means of energy generation should be considered on its merits and none dismissed on ideological grounds.
Family breakdown leads to more households and, therefore, more energy consumption. Our policies promoting family stability would, therefore, help reduce carbon emissions.
