10:10 Peer Review

New Labour peer Bryony Worthington is a breath of fresh air | Damian Carrington | Environment | guardian.co.uk

Worthington is currently director of the carbon trading thinktank and campaign group Sandbag, which she founded, as well as a board member of the 10:10 campaign. Prior to this she was a policy adviser to Scottish and Southern Electricity and its CEO Ian Marchant. It is not a coincidence that SSE is the most enlightened on green issues of the big six power utilities. While at SSE, she was seconded to government to take part in writing the climate change bill, which is now law and binds the UK to cutting its carbon emissions. The idea of national carbon budgets, now in law, was hers. Her earlier career was as an environmental campaigner, heading Friends of the Earth's climate change campaign. She studied English literature: "very useful," she jokes.

"A breath of fresh air"?
Yet another professional campaigner, what real job could she ever get if she wasn't stoking up scares?

" While at SSE, she was seconded to government to take part in writing the climate change bill, which is now law and binds the UK to cutting its carbon emissions."

My gob is smacked. For all the hysteria from warmists about big oil, big energy, etc distorting policies with money what we have here is an Feinds of the Earth agent writing legislation.

The government's and the UN's love of the AGW issue and solving global warming would disappear overnight if somehow all scientists were to agree that lowering taxes and reducing government would fix the problem. The ONLY reason the UN, Western governments and 3rd world governments favor this issue is because the supposed cure will reward each of them handsomely. Let me digress to my sinful youth when I tried to convince young women that their breasts would grow a full size if they had sex. I don't know if it were true but I was very eager to give it my all in the name of science of course...

So are you telling me this evil self-serving bitch is full of hot air?
