Gordon’s Green Plans April 9, 2009

Posted by letitiahughes in environment, Uncategorized.

I was interested to hear this week about Gordon Brown’s green plans for the budget.

He has said that  green innovations would be a major part of the government’s plans for recovery being unveiled in the budget later this month. An interesting if not unexpected development, echoed from Obama’s pledges in America.

It is true that green technology offers huge opportunities for job creation – Nicholas Stern mentioned this in a New Scientist article a while ago – as well as improving quality of life and providing environmental benefit. I agree with this, but think that this green revolution should be have happening no matter what, not as a rescue solution in the economic downturn.

In particular, Brown wants Britain to become a market leader across the world for electric and hybrid cars, with the option to recharge vehicles at the roadside. I would be interested here to see what their plans are in more detail, but I think it is a good idea in principle.
