how Labour made the 3rd runway "sustainable"


Jonathon Porritt rules.

He tells of the government's plan to include the cost of carbon emissions in any cost-benefit analysis of proposed projects such as widening the M1 and the 3rd runway. The thing is, they've picked a price for this carbon that is an outright absurdity, as Johnno points out.

I initially raved about this plan because- if the carbon price was set accurately- it would make all the blatantly unsustainable pet projects currently being forced through by Labour utterly unfeasible. I really though that they would get put back into the Fucking Stupid Idea box and left there. Sadly not.
