George Monbiot, the darling of the Greens, is starting to question some of the key tenets of the environmentalists in this article. He rightly recognises that solar panels are not a viable way of making electricity. When he starts to question it, how long will it be before our politicians start to do so? The following quote is very pertinent:

"To the greens who accuse me of treachery I say this: we do not have a moral obligation to support all forms of renewable energy, however inefficient and expensive they may be. We do have a moral obligation not to be blinded by sentiment. We owe it to the public, and to our credibility, to support the schemes which work, fairly and cheaply, and reject the schemes which cost a fortune and make no difference."

So back to nuclear and fossil fuels then!
