A majority of the UK public and almost half of Conservative voters support a radical plan to transform the economy and tackle the climate crisis, a poll suggests.

一项民意调查显示,英国大多数公众和近一半的保守派选民支持一项彻底改革经济、应对气候危机的计划。

YouGov found that 56% of people back the total decarbonisation of the UK economy by 2030 and just under half support public spending to make large swathes of public transport free to use.

舆观调查网发现,56%的人支持英国经济到2030年实现完全脱碳,并且接近一半的受访者支持旨在使大部分公共交通免费使用的公共支出。



Labour wants the UK to hit zero carbon by 2030 as part of its Green Industrial Revolution agenda, the Green party also has a target date of 2030, and the Liberal Democrats have set a target of 2045.

作为“绿色工业革命”议程的一部分,工党希望英国到2030年实现零碳排放,绿党也设定了2030年零碳目标,而自由民主党则设定了2045年零碳目标。

Aliya Yule, a co-founder of Labour for a Green New Deal, which campaigned for Labour to adopt the 2030 target, said the polling showed next month’s vote was becoming the UK’s first “climate election”.

工党“绿色新政”联合创始人阿利亚·尤尔表示,民调显示,下月的投票将成为英国首次“气候选举”。

“The figures demonstrate the huge public appetite for rapid and radical government action on climate change,” he said.

他说:“这些数据表明了公众对政府迅速采取激进行动应对气候变化的巨大需求。”

Yule said only Labour’s Green Industrial Revolution plans – which aim to tie radical action on the environment to huge job creation and housing upgrade schemes – would address the scale of the crisis.

尤尔表示,只有工党的“绿色工业革命”计划(旨在将环境方面的激进行动与大规模创造就业和住房升级计划联系起来)才能解决危机的规模。

“Not even Conservative voters support the Tories’ net zero 2050 target. They have no credibility on climate change, not even with their own supporters,” he added.

“甚至连保守派选民也不支持保守党2050年零排放的目标。后者在气候变化问题上没有可信度,甚至在自己的支持者中也没有,”他补充道。



“Parties should respond in kind by offering a Green New Deal which rapidly reduces emissions while improving living standards and expanding services like free bus travel.”

“各方应以同样的方式做出回应,提供一项绿色新政,在提高生活水平和扩大免费巴士旅行等服务的同时,迅速减少碳排放。”
