The Plundered Planet: How to Reconcile Prosperity with Nature by Paul Collier | Book review 8.5.2010 Guardian: Environment
John Vidal tries to make sense of an economist's ecological theories Paul Collier CBE is a heavyweight economist, in the same league as Joseph Stiglitz and Jeffrey Sachs. He's an Oxford professor and a former head of research at the World Bank, as well as being a UN and British government adviser. He is an authority on war and democracy, he has addressed the UN general assembly and has given a seminar at 10 Downing Street. His previous book, The Bottom Billion , a provocative look at the economics of the poorest, was lauded by US treasury secretary Larry Summers and billionaire George Soros. In short, Collier now sits on the top shelf of intellectual big cheeses – a ripe Stilton in the larder of the global liberal establishment. Like ...

How to sell green energy | Sahil Kapur 8.5.2010 Guardian: Comment is Free
Linking oil dependency with US national security is an effective tactic to win public support for clean energy reform Fox News has revealingly declined to air an ad that emphasizes the national security perils of remaining dependent on oil in a call for clean energy reform. The decision by the network – primarily a communications arm for the Republican party's right flank – underlies an important lesson for proponents of energy legislation as they unveil their legislation this Wednesday : it's wiser to sell reform on the basis of national security and jobs, rather than the environment or climate change. "Every day Congress doesn't pass a clean energy climate plan our enemies get stronger," says the ad, which uses menacing imagery of Iran ...

EU drops energy regulations that could have shut Drax 7.5.2010 Guardian: Environment
• Emissions targets delayed until 2019 to avoid energy crunch • Environmental groups angry at reprieve for Drax Pressure from the British government and energy companies has encouraged the European Union to drop new regulations that could have led to the closure of Drax and other heavily polluting coal-fired power stations within six years. The sector was facing tougher emissions targets but has been given an extra three years' grace period to 2019 after Britain argued it faced an "energy crunch" before large-scale wind farms and nuclear stations came on stream closer to 2020. The lifeline for up to half a dozen coal or gas-fired power facilities, which could lead to 60m tonnes of extra C0 2 being released into the atmosphere by Drax ...
