Thanks for the link, quite why it should be so noteworthy to find a sensible speech I dont know. As you say the last para is a corker

'This cuddly green bunny of a Bill conceals some of the most unsatisfactory aspects of legislation that we ever had to contend with from the previous Government. There are policies with zero detail and no timetable for the emergence of that detail; there are sweeping powers for the Executive, constrained only by the weak parliamentary safeguard of the affirmative procedure. There are virtually no details of costs or benefits for major parts of the Bill, where there are at best aspirational statements in support of them. I hate to say it to my own party on the Front Bench, but this is no way to govern.'

The (Shale) Gas Renaissance
The impact on Europe, suffering under Russian dominance for natural gas supplies, could come even quicker – if it were not for environmental ‘concerns’ which all too often paralyzes EU energy thinking.

Controversial gas 'fracking' extraction headed to Europe

The Independent - Desperation results in theory on the run

Scientists have established a link between the cold, snowy winters in Britain and melting sea ice in the Arctic and have warned that long periods of freezing weather are likely to become more frequent in years to come.

An analysis of the ice-free regions of the Arctic Ocean has found that the higher temperatures there caused by global warming, which have melted the sea ice in the summer months, have paradoxically increased the chances of colder winters in Britain and the rest of northern Europe

There is a transcript of Former Chancellor of the Exchequer Lord Lawson's devastating speech in the Lord's during their debate on the second reading of the Energy Bill, posted on GWPF currently. The actual transcript is here

It really deserves a wider audience than it will likely receive in our MSM.

Did you notice the source is Green Futures?

"Green Futures was founded in 1996 by Forum for the Future director Jonathon Porritt, who continues to chair our Advisory Board."

No matter which browser I use (IE, FF, Safari), the 'recent comments' ticker seems to have stuck. It's a couple of days out of synch with the blog now.

You probably know this, but just in case...
