I hadn't, but I've just looked at their summary on line. Oddly, there's nothing at all under the "Environment" heading but then quite a bit under "Energy"
* Scrap the 2008 Climate Change Act and the EU’s Large Combustion Plant Directive
* Support ‘fracking’ for shale gas
* End subsidies for wind turbines and solar photovoltaic arrays
* Support renewable energy where it can deliver electricity at competitive prices
* Seek to rejuvenate the coal industry
* Abolish ‘green levies’ to cut the cost of fuel bills
So it's mostly about money, really.

That's surprising. I would have thought UKIP's environmental policies would be along the lines that methane is causing global and the methane is being cause.d by foreigners who, as everyone knows, fart prodigiously. Obviously, we need to ban foreigners which would also make the UK smell a lot better.

Well the education bit seem to be devoid of any mention of climate change, but does include the idea that STEM subjects should be excempt from tutition fees (though I'm not sure how much this help with the economic kicking we'd get from exiting the EU)!

From a professional point of view their attitude to re-developing contaminated land isn't that far out there either!

Nigel Farage - a pain in the back (not the backside) which might explain his lacklustre debate performances:

Might he be treated by foreign doctors who are not from the UK or the Commonwealth?

(Off-topic somewhat I realise.)
