Thanks for the interesting post.
Did you see David MacKay's last interview ()youtube) ? He credits the civil servants in the old Dept of Climate Change with doing the arithmetic and advising against subsidising renewables. The Ministers in his time were Huhne and Davey.
I cannot see any logic in having dedicated advising scientists ,headed by someone like Mackay ,and then taking contrary action?
Seemingly Huhne is now involved in a company shipping wood for fuel across the Atlantic.What's all that about?
