The Road to ???
Interesting report from Her Majesty's Government today claiming that "the road, rail and air networks of Britain can all be greatly expanded without undermining Britain's commitment to reducing climate change emissions". Transport secretary, Ruth Kelly is launching a "pro-green, pro-growth" discussion paper today which will demonstrate how all this can be done.
So more travel, less carbon. Hmmm - Looks like another call for business as usual with a light green wash applied sloppily on its front cover to me. If this climate change business was that easy, why the heck hasn't it been sorted already?
