Going Green

The economy is the star of the 2011 election but there are a number of other issues that will play important supporting roles. One of these is the Climate. In a country where the effects of global warming can have catastrophic results people are much more aware of this than else where.

These days, saving the climate is as much a matter of ‘green growth’ as it is preventing the Arctic from melting, and discussions about the issue are carried out in the shadow of the overall economic situation.

In this election both sides seem to agree that the country can’t afford not to invest in sustainable energy, but blame each other for the lack of progress.

Cyclists seems to agree!
