Thanks a lot for this, a great round-up (which saves me some time and blood pressure!).

A lot of talk, very little action, as ever. The environmental movement is currently so caught up in proving itself right over CSP (which can only work for a minority, particularly those investing in it now), GSHP (ditto), off-setting (ditto), nuclear (aaargh)(etc) that we miss the real point - governance structures, particularly emerging forms of global governance and how they are bending the climate change agenda to their own ends.

"the lesson of history is that when growth goes, altruism goes with it". Too true, and this is exactly the sort of situation which opportunists can abuse. But that doesn't matter while we're saving the planet, right?
