I wrote this in July in my post Arab wars!.
"Green energy is expensive and despite the instagram generation virtuously espousing recycling clothes, they all love primark quick fashion.
And while the global green energy movement is a thoroughly admirable aspiration I don't believe that either politicians, meople or children have any understanding of the hit that this will have to their finances or pocket money."
Why are politicians so slow on the uptake?
As one Bloomberg pundit stated.
Something along the lines of...
"We are going to have to burn a considerable amount of fossil fuels over the next ten years or so to build our green power infrastructure."
Don't listen to the kids too much!
