Malcom Wicks on CCS

In Angles on January 29, 2009 at 10:45 pm

The Environmental Audit Committee has made it quite clear that the govornment has moved with a complete lack of urgency on carbon capture and storage…that isn’t because like some of us they think it’s not going to ammount to anything, nope, its because they have there priorities badly mixed up. They are complacent and distressingly incompetent. And look at the rhetoric from Malcom Wicks:

Mr Wicks defended the use of coal in power stations as necessary. “Coal is and will continue to be, in our judgment, a vital part of the energy mix. Diversity is vital. If we don’t have coal, it will bring forth an extra dash for gas. We need to think of the national security implications for that.”

Describing CCS as vital and “dear to my heart”, he said: “We are leading the world on CCS technology.”

Malcom wicks stod down from his place at BERR but is now gordon browns international energy envoy, and thats a bit more responsibility than i`d like him to have.
