So my \”vision\” of a sustainable energy future for the UK is relatively simple. I believe a 100% renewable supply strategy for the UK is feasible by 2050 at the latest, assuming only that we succeed in reducing total energy consumption in the UK by at least 40% by 2030 through a wholly different approach to energy efficiency than any government has ever demonstrated before.
That is, we can have an economy powered purely by renewables as long as we don\’t actually have an economy and we\’re all happy shivering in the dark.
After that lovely \”whole new approach\” to government that he\’d foist upon us.
Sir Johnny is, as you will remember, the one who wants 53 million of us dead, arguing as he does at the Optimum Population Trust that the country can only support 17 million people.
How unlike what we\’d expect from a Old Etonian Baronet: the problem is just too many of us damn peasants, isn\’t it?
Khmer Vert has nothing on this guy.
