How politically realistic are the climate action goals that European governments are setting in lockstep with the United States? Some analysts are warning that the rich can afford the necessary changes, but the burdensome costs of a green transition for middle-class and poorer voters could trigger a backlash and prompt electoral reversals. Others worry European governments have still not fleshed out in practical terms how to meet their ambitious climate action and emissions reduction goals and that a failure to deliver solutions, as happened after the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference, risks undermining an emerging public consensus about the danger of climate change and a recognition action is required. “If you create a deadline that is unrealistic, which we will not be able to actually achieve, you put it completely beyond the bounds of possibility — that doesn’t mean you can’t have a high bar, you should be aiming for a high bar — but it can’t be unrealistic,” Jamie … [Read more...] about Are Europe’s Climate Action Goals Realistic?

The nation has been gripped by series 6 and the hunt for "H" or "the fourth man," the bent copper lurking amongst the fictional crime drama who was in league with the OCG (Organised Crime Gang). And Mother of God, it wasn't who we were expecting. Even our AC-12 heroes, Superintendent Ted Hastings, Detective Inspector Kate Fleming and Detective Inspector Steve Arnott couldn't believe the top villain was, in fact, chief plonker, DSI Ian Buckells, played by Nigel Boyle.
