Brexit: Environmentalists Fear ‘Bonfire’ of Regulations
Designed to Fight Climate Change and Protect Wildlife

Remain campaigners have argued that EU legislation has helped towards tackling water and air pollution, protect endangered species and imposed tough safeguards on the use of genetically modified crops and potentially dangerous chemicals

Regulations set in place to help fight climate change and protect Britains wildlife may be destroyed following the Brexit result, top environmentalists have warned.

.

Reacting to the vote to leave the European Union, charity groups and climate change campaigners said the result could have a devastating effect on the UK environment, since more than 70 per cent of environmental safeguarding comes from European legislation.

.

Greenpeace UK executive director John Sauven said: Many of the laws that make our drinking and bathing water safe, our air cleaner, our fishing industry more sustainable and our climate safer now hang by a thread There is a very real fear that Cameron’s successor will come from the school that supports a bonfire of anti-pollution protections.

.

In an post-referendum statement, Friends of the Earth said the group could no longer rely on the EU to protect our nature and habitats, adding that clean beaches, air quality and bees were among the factors put at risk by potential loss of EU legislation.

.

Craig Bennett, Friends of the Earths CEO, said: The referendum may be over but many of the difficult debates are only just beginning. The environment must be at the heart of our negotiations with Europe and how we create a positive future for our country. We cannot let the UK return to the days of the dirty man of Europe. Protections for our birds and wildlife, our beaches and rivers, must not be sacrificed in the name of cutting away so-called EU red tape.

.

The environment was rarely mentioned during the referendum but it must now move up the political agenda. With urgent issues like climate change, air pollution and destruction of the natural world already impacting this generation, not just the next, we dont have time for the environment to take a back seat through years of negotiations.

.

Those in favour of leaving the EU have argued that the UK may soon be free of red tape restrictions which are damaging to UK farms and fisheries, the latter being known to discard large quantities of dead fish into the sea to avoid breaking EU quotas.

.

Remain campaigners, however have praised the EUs record on environmental issues as one of its greatest achievements, arguing that union legislation has helped towards tackling water and air pollution, protect endangered species and impose tough safeguards on the use of genetically modified crops and potentially dangerous chemicals.

.

While laws that have already been adopted into English and Scottish law will still apply following the UKs departure form the EU, parliament will be able make changes should it choose.

.

Rules restricting the amount of fracking could also be lifted, since the majority of restrictions come from European directives, Greenpeace analysis suggests.

.

Green Party MP Caroline Lucas has called on progressive parties to join forces in order to resist any attack on hard won rights following Brexit.
