Shale ignorance! Lords blast gov for ignoring cool new fuels

And ... we've found John Selwyn Gummer

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Deben began by acknowledging that he had fingers in several pies. His chairmanships include greenwashing outfit Sancroft; Veolia, which is big in recycling; offshore wind company Forewind; and Corlan Hafren, the Severn barrage company. There are more directorships.

Perhaps having so many bets on the table explained his position, which is an unusual one.

"The argument is over. There is no point in arguing," he insisted. "If you do not believe in climate change, you must just accept the population argument and the changes that will be needed to reserve and conserve the resources that we have," he said.

It's him

So heads he wins, tails you lose. He accepted that the consumer would pay the price, but said they'd be grateful in the long run.

"It would be foolish to tell people that because they do not like the rise in the cost of electricity we should not allow it happen. They will be much angrier if we allow the world to be endangered because we have not taken these steps."

The Ex-Gummer is President of GLOBE International, the international club that flies eco-aware politicians around the world. ®
