Manifestos: green issues

Green Liberal Democrats have issued their statistical analysis of all the general election manifestos:

Party ranking by manifesto keyword count on environmental issues*

Green Party 293
Liberal Democrats 230
SNP 59
Tory 51
Plaed Cymru 47
Labour 45
* NB this reflects how important the environment is to the party - not how pro- or anti- they are (for example, UKIP are opposed to having an environment at all and their opposition leads to a high word count). Nor does it take into account how practical and achievable those policies are. The Liberal Democrats are ‪#‎BritainsGreenestParty‬ precisely because they have a record of success implementing their practical policy ideas.
