We must laud our present governments investment and commitment into the development of off shore wind farms but we must question their practice of granting contracts to foreign competitors. We must get our once Great Nation back to production.
That said, there is so much more to be done and so much that has been done to exacerbate the problem, like the blind stupidity that allowed the post office to take the Mail off the rails, and allowing the local planning authorities to follow the failed American model of bigger and bigger out of town hypermarkets that kill our high street trade. and cause extra car journeys and greater carbon immitions.

Much has been done to address the problems of pollution but there is much more that can be achieved by way of recycling and re-use, if the government is going to keep legislating then let them legislate against all the over packaging and the mountain of unnecessary paperwork created daily, and what about all this ’junk mail’ who’s off setting their carbon footprint?
