the government are failing us

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A new link has been added to my little list on the left. The factoid was from this Guardian article. Its particularly damning of the government's pathetic approach, not only to combating climate change, but to the energy security and sustainability of our way of life.

"The London opera houses have had more taxpayer money than the British marine power industry over the past few years."

There's also a new offering from George to peruse, in which our golden boy slates the government's latest climate change report in his usual well-evidenced fashion.

"[Lord] Turner’s suggested cuts are more likely to produce four degrees of warming than two degrees."

Plus there's a great piece from Majikthise on Obama's choice for National Security Advisor: A retired Marine General who actively fought the US's own climate change bill. Nice.
