Your Jevons Paradox stuff depresses the shit out of me. I know it’s true, and my GOd yes we absolutely need global macro-economic intervention, but if Kyoto, which is simply too little too late, can’t be agreed to by the big boys and can’t even have its targets hit by governments like ours who are supposedly commited to it, then when’s it gonna happen???? And the thought that small scale businesses like mine might at the end of the day just be giving the market more capacity to be wasteful makes me want to buy an SUV with my new credit card and suck it’s exhaust pipe until sweet oblivion arrives…

You probably know this already, but really interesting programme on R4 tomorrow at 11 about Labour’s environmental aspirations when elected, and how and why they were compromised…
