Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The report on the "Energy transition" public consultation will be published. Batho conducted the exercise in good faith (she had the Energy portfolio as part of the Environment ministry), but was, necessarily, in conflict with the powerful fossil fuel and nuclear lobbies.

If the report is buried by Hollande, as seems likely, then it will be time for the Greens to leave the government. The two ministers are doing excellent and important work, but they have no business being in an austerity government which renounces its ecological ambitions.

The bright side is that it allows preparation of the European elections in better conditions.

It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue - Queen Elizabeth II
