As days turn into hours before the 23 June referendum, edie has pulled together the best – and most controversial – quotes on some of the most pressing environmental questions surrounding the debate. But can you guess who said what?

Both sides of the debate have been accused of scaremongering and fabricating figures to fit their own agendas, but amidst all of the name calling, side switching and utter confusion, what are the experts saying about the potential impacts that Brexit could have on the UK’s environment and energy policies?

Areedie readers right in their decision to vote remain? Or have the impacts of a potential Brexit been blown out of proportion by a media frenzy hungry to ignite a war between the two sides?

Whether its concerns over the UK’s energy supplies and costs, or a chance to free ourselves from “spirit-crushing” directives, the referendum is shaping up to become one of the defining moments in the British history.

While the likes of David Beckham and Joey Essex have thrown their not-so-substantial weight into the referendum mix, edie has rounded-up the expert opinions from a variety of well-respected environmental voices.
