Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

Sack The Chancellor!



George Osborne has shown the country again just how out of touch he is with reality. In a recent article in The Independent it appears that the Chancellor has started to refer to Parliamentary green campaigners as 'the environmental Taliban'. While the Energy Secretary, Ed Davey, is pushing for legislation to contain a specific legally binding commitment on the total amount of carbon that can be emitted by powers stations by 2030 to “bind in” the Government to renewable energy, the Chancellor is doing his best to disrupt such measures:

Meanwhile, it appears that just under half the UK's voters want Mr Osborne to be sacked as Chancellor. According to The Daily Mail Mr Osborne is now the country's most disliked MP.

Even The Sun wants him out:

I agree. Osborne should either resign forthwith or be sacked. He is out-of-touch, completely unrealistic in his view of what's going on in the world and therefore he should go. Preferably as soon as possible, if not immediately.
