Alex Salmond promises Scotland will be powered entirely by renewables by 2020:

Some fudging:

Mr Salmond's aides stressed the 100 per cent target would not mean non-renewable power stations would close. Rather, the First Minister said a combination of renewables and non-renewables would ensure Scotland produced twice the amount of electricity it required, which would be readily bought up by the rest of the UK.

Oh dear.

Another good reason to lift the absurd proscription on the stuff then. Perhaps then growers would simply use the sun instead of hiding in cellars.

A psychotherapist and climate activist has had second thoughts about pushing such activism on to children: http://rorandall.org/2011/03/23/should-we-be-working-with-children-about-climate-change/

She argues that it might cause them anxiety, that it might be counterproductive for the cause, and that people are just picking on them for their own selfish ends.

I have added some comments here: http://climatelessons.blogspot.com/2011/04/not-just-another-brick-in-wall-hey.html

"Evan Mills, who works at Lawrence Livermore Labs but conducted the study in his own time, estimates that indoor pot growing accounts for 1 per cent of energy usage in the United States, with each spliff representing two pounds of CO2 emission. Heavy."
