    • Date: 29/07/10

    Over the last few days, it has been extremely encouraging to see groups across the spectrum of British politics acknowledging the problems with our overly expensive climate change policy.  Unfortunately, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) appears to be retreating into overly optimistic delusion and the Government policy is therefore still heading for […]
