for the Otago Daily Times – a bouquet

Great Editorial in the Otago Daily Times today:

http://www.odt.co.nz/opinion/editorial/150745/what-do-about-fuel-prices

It’s based on the Guardian article:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2011/mar/05/oil-uk-energy-sources 

or a parallel blurb. It sort of fudges (the Pommy one) off into  ‘green’ and ‘carbon’, and I’m not sure Huhne really knows what Huhne means…………. yet.

Nonetheless, the ODT took it, and made it better with the addition of the Mark Stockdale quote.

The end sentence is a winner – “the only way we can manage that is by reducing our consumption”.

Good on you, ODT. Over the last five years, you’ve frustrated the hell out of me – but credit where credit’s due. Now ask the question, of every tout of ‘growth’ – “on which energy source?”.
