Energy Bill report stage
Oct 28, 2013
Bishop Hill in Climate: Parliament

The House of Lords is once again considering the Energy Bill. In particular, this afternoon noble Lords discussed Lord Oxburgh's decarbonisation amendment.

There is a really interesting dynamic at play, with the scientific big guns on the "let them eat carbon" side, namely Lords May and Krebs, interrupting Lord Ridley repeatedly. Watch from 15:49 for Lawson, then 16:00 for Krebs, 16:19 for May, followed by Ridley and Deben.

GWPF just tweeted that the amendment has been defeated.
