Conferring

Today I'm off to the Scotsman conference on unconventional oil and gas, so blogging will again be light-to-nonexistent.

Normal service should be resumed tomorrow.

I trust you have a copy of yesterday's article in the Times by Matt Ridley.

We shall be requiring a full report!
Which we shall then compare with any similar report in the Scotsman.

Here's an unbelievably stupid article in today's Daily Mail that would be worth you having a laugh over when you get back.

"Light to non-Existent"

Is this the Greens energy policy?

Anon, by Daily Mail standards that isn't stupid.
Finding a signature of heavy metal mining form the world's first large scale silver mining region - good work.

not sure about the "anthropocene" though as only man has detectors sensitive enough to notice man's effect,

Dale Vince is now backing Labour.

Bish, a pleasure to meet you today. It was a thought-provoking conference and the "elephant in the room" was the vexed question of how to ensure there is a balanced public debate on fracking, untainted by exaggeration and scare-mongering. Food for thought.

Jack Cowper, 4:52 pm: It could spectacularly backfire were Labour to somehow get back into power in May. Vince is also bank-rolling the legal bills of the anti-frackers at Balcombe, which won't be resolved until after the election. If that's not a conflict of interests, I don't know what is.

As I posted at the Times, it is rather sad for Ed Miliband that the only businessman he can name as a supporter is the execrable trougher Vince. Miliband does not seem to understand the significance of Vince's 100% state-funded business model, and appears to think he is a real businessman like people who sell stuff.

David S, unfortunately neither do the w@nkers who keep handing over unnecessary amounts of their hard-earned cash to Vince and his Ecoconricity scam in the mistaken belief that they are saving the Planet, and not filling his wallet.

MCourtney, the Daily Mail article was stupid because it talked about 'man-made greenhouse gases, when what they were referring to had nothing to do with the greenhouse effect, and were not even gases.
