The Outlook is Sunny
Sunder Katwala, general secretary of the Fabian Society, "The Tory blogs range from different varieties of agnosticism to the absolute certainty that climate change is a fraud,"
He said his findings suggested that the so-called "Tory netroots" of influential bloggers could exert pressure on party policy in the event of a Tory win at the next election.
"It puts barriers on a strong policy response," Katwala said. "It reflects a continued strong belief in a free-market response to climate change – to price in a response. But you can't do that if you're a believer in small government because that means a lot of multilateral governance and regulation of the economy if you're to have working markets."
I'm rather relieved that some Tories still believe in free markets and pricing in a response, and amused that it is apparently impossible to have working markets with a small government because they need "a lot of multilateral governance and regulation of the economy".
