What must be done!

Is believing two contradictory things before breakfast actually a requirement for being a Green?

Ed Matthew, senior economics campaigner at Friends of the Earth

\”Cutting emissions must be at the heart of the pre-budget report – slashing energy waste, developing the UK\’s vast renewable energy potential, ending fuel poverty and creating tens of thousands of new green jobs.\”

Renewable energy costs more than fossil. Thus he\’s calling for energy prices to increase. Fuel poverty is a result of energy prices being high relative to incomes. Thus he is calling for low energy prices.

It\’s pretty good to be calling for both high energy prices and low energy prices in the same sentence, don\’t you think?
