UK Plays Chicken With Europe

Cameron is depending on European leaders not being as spineless as he is.

David Cameron has moved to resolve a Cabinet row over the UK’s climate change targets, with an agreement on emissions to be announced on Tuesday.

This will see drastic cuts in greenhouse gas emissions to 2027 and an overhaul of the way energy is produced.

But ministers worried about the impact on the economy and burdens on industry have secured a get-out clause.

The targets will be reviewed if European nations backslide on their own climate commitments.

Even the PM is probably possibly hopefully intelligent enough to realize that government regulations do not generate electricity.

The Cabinet could save a lot of hassle by simply overturning the First Law of Thermodynamics.

    Is this just lip service, a lot of talk, but very little action?
