Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks for covering this, Luis. Here is my latest from a month ago on this topic.

Disheartening indeed. Basically, the decisions were taken long ago and nothing will change them. We will import unsustainable fuels at prices determined by the oil market. Meanwhile, our own agriculture will take a major step towards becoming an entirely industrial activity. We will call these fuels green.

Green is one heck of a funny colour.

... your red-green, and your dirty grey green.

Obviously they are opting for the latter.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.

I share your sentiment, although I try to draw comfornt from the fact that it's an entirely short term solution. As fossil fuels die, they're gonna have to change everything anyway, this is just a postponement of making those decisions.

keep to the Fen Causeway
