Jeremy Leggett: Brimming with rich, fruity awesome


Jeremy has a CiF article imploring the UK government to initiate a Green New Deal, as frequently advocated on these pages. He deploys some numbers to demonstrate that money invested in such projects generate dosproportionate returns to the initial investment and can stabilise economies in recession whilst simultaneously initiating exactly the large-scale low-carbon development required to prevent runaway climate change.

What's the betting Gordon Brown and the rest of his pseudo-democratic fuckfest completely ignore this suggestion and throw more of our money at the people who caused the crisis? As Jonathon Porritt points out, its not looking too likely, raising the prospect of a massive competition gap in green technology opening up between countries which embrace the concept and those which are run by cunts. Like the UK.
