18 June 2015

"If renewables are expected to stand on their own financial feet, why not the oil industry and the fracking game?

Green Party Leaders remember Lady Rhondda and equal pay for women

The tragedy of not acting on new energy supplies

05 June 2015

"Added to the tragedy of job losses, is the fact that overseas companies are setting up in the UK to make wind turbines. These should have been Welsh companies building wind mills for Welsh communities and providing good Welsh jobs.”

More ambition needed for carbon reduction in Wales, say Greens

01 June 2015

“Greens are very disappointed that carbon targets in Wales have consistently been missed, despite the sterling work of industry which have reduced their own carbon emissions by 41%.

If You Think Green – Vote Green!

06 May 2015
