LE candidate calls for ‘radical action’ on climate change

A local election candidate say ‘radical action’ is needed to tackle climate change.

PBP candidate, Nigel Gallagher says the recent licences issued to energy company CNOCC to drill in the search for fossill fuels along the western coast is ‘hypocrisy’ on the Governments part.
