This article appears in the ecologist. It includes my Colleague on Aberdeenshire Council, Martin Ford.
Its thoughtful and even if you not ‘Green’ or an ecologist, there is considerable truth in the argument. I have advocated investment in non fossil industry here in the North East.

There was a bright future. Its getting dimmer as time goes by and the Sir Ian Woods of this world drive direction in a false economy.
