At the moment, we are very concerned about the government’s anti-environmental stance, despite Cameron’s promise that this would be the “greenest government ever”. Just a few examples:
1) Govt cuts solar feed-in tariffs in half:http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2011/nov/04/solar-successful-tariffs-cut
2) Govt secretly tries to dilute EU green energy targets: http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2012/jun/03/coalition-dilute-eu-green-energy-targets
3) Govt plans huge investment in fracking and a “dash for gas”: http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/blog/2012/jun/29/fracking-debate-climate-change-risks
Behind these policies, we see the hand of the Big Six Energy companies, who lobby the Government successfully at every turn. Concern for maintaining a safe and clean environment, and producing energy at affordable prices for ordinary citizens, clearly do not figure in their calculations.
