    The government’s undermining of the countries sustainable future is a treasonable act and needs to be dealt with as such.
    The return on investment for this governments policies on energy for the population is negative with the social and economic costs of the depletion of non renewable resources, the destruction of the environment go unaccounted for and are paid by everybody excepting the exploiters of the increased value through scarcity.
    The rate of increase in fuel and food poverty and the escalation in physical losses – drought, famine, destruction of property and health through climate change – are the costs this government and its backers wilfully ignore at the peril of all future generations. That is treason.

    “..doing away with the 2008 Planning and Energy Act “, together with the requirements in the Home Energy Conservation Act 1955 being reduced to guidance only, means that there will be no obligation on Councils, nor anyone else, to meet the desultory 10% reduction in household carbon emissions by 2016..
    Leaves the way clear to continuing uncontrolled CO2e emissions..
