Energy and Climate Change Agenda

Who will you vote for next month?

Why do the political parties continue to steal each others credentials and continue to get it wrong?

Editor’s Comment: In our brave new world of coalitions, surely the Greens should be responsible for representing green issues, Lib Dems for fairness and education, Cons for Business and Enterprise, Lab for equality and employment and UKIP and the others .. well for independence and injecting a modicum of oversight and commonsense at least!

Are the ‘arms-length’ Lib Dem solutions including locations for green technologies simply missing the point – or merely passing the buck by aligning themselves with the Conservatives?

With the early mismanagement of government grants for installing domestic solar panel systems in 2011, we ended up with vast solar farms built by large investors stuck far away from consumers in remote fields instead of on rooftops locally! Thus resulted in a lost opportunity stimulate small businesses like builders and roofers and as a consequence and we ended up with more expensive wind farms located far out to sea and a continued lack if investment in tidal and water flow and wasted opportunities! “More walking the walk and less talking the talk there please Ed!”

To their credit, they recognized the problems with coal-fired power stations, retained overseas aid and famine relief but never really get their heads around carbon capture and storage and ended-up burning straw biomass and green timber sourced thousands of miles away from Canada instead, whilst exporting much of our waste to China as our landfill sites became full to capacity! Again to their credit, recycling has taken off and we do by and large sort our rubbish now, but how much really ends up being processed appropriately? Most is simply bundled up and dumped in landfill sites or sent out to sea in ships – hopefully never to be seen or dealt with again..

One can’t help asking who were the real beneficiaries of these policies favouring large business interests.. which leads us on to ..
