The Sunday Telegraph Alternative Energy Policy

The Carbon Brief has effectively debunked the call in last Sunday’s Telegraph for a switch away from renewables and back to fossil fuels, emphasising that shale gas is unlikely to bring down UK gas prices, quoting Poyry, Chatham House, LSE and Bloomberg as evidence. The paper also calls for the repeal of the Climate Change Act but Sir John Beddington, the Government’s Chief Scientific Adviser, says there is a “need for urgency” to deal with climate change and that the evidence is “completely unequivocal”.

Does the Sunday Telegraph’s alternative energy policy add up?
