New first minister must lead ‘climate parliament’, say Greens in latest SNP deal hint

The new First Minister must head “a climate parliament”, Scottish Green Party leaders have said amid the leadership race to replace Nicola Sturgeon as SNP leader.

The calls come on the day a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is due to be released.

The IPCC was established to provide policymakers with periodic scientific assessments of climate change, its impacts and potential future risks, and to propose adaptation and mitigation options.

Scottish Green Party co-leaders Patrick Harvie and Lorna Slater have said the report will “not withhold its warnings” on climate change for Scotland.

The couple said the “tribal party politics” will do nothing to mitigate the effects of the changing climate and insisted the new First Minister and other parties must work together.

Her calls come amid the leadership competition to succeed Ms Sturgeon as SNP leader and first minister.
