This week: is biomass energy really green energy? A new report throws doubts. The Lords Economic Affairs Committee has issued a report casting doubt on the government’s energy policy, but other organisations have cast severe doubt on the Lords’ report. Energy, shouldn’t we be saving it? Maybe by insulating one home a minute, every minute until 2050? That’s the message from the Green Buildings Council.

Meanwhile, they say that the road to hell is paved with good intentions - or could it be paved with solar panels? Different experiences from France and from the USA. And then there’s Jeremy Leggett, author of The Winning of the Carbon War, who’s opened up a whole range of new fronts in the conflict.
