Farage is the father of the 2016 Brexit referendum that took Britain out of the European Union is launching what he hopes will be a sequel: a public vote to abandon Britain’s $1.3 trillion “Net Zero” effort to eliminate carbon from the economy by 2050.
Farage’s Britain Means Business movement says the political class has taken the country down a “ruinous path” by committing to the Net Zero target without any public debate. He warns: “If we are not careful, the only zero will be the amount in people’s bank accounts as we send our jobs and money overseas.”
Farage held a news conference this week calling for an alternative: stop Britain’s fracking moratorium and limit the seemingly endless subsidies the nation’s wind and solar power industry receive. He was joined by Graham Stringer, a prominent Labor Party MP.
