Would a windfall tax on energy companies help with fuel poverty? – GB News

I absolutely do support a windfall tax on energy companies. The thing to remember is that these are unearned profits, this wasn’t energy companies investing, putting hard work in, lots of skills, or lots of risk taking in order to make these profits. Things happened in the world, and energy […]

Tom Burke – E3G – Is the Winter Games in Beijing adding to the burden of climate change? – Sky News

If the Chinese were using fossil fuels to make snow that would not be green or sustainable, but actually they are using pretty much 100% renewable energy to supply the winter games. So in terms of the production of the snow, that is not adding to the burden of climate […]

Will climate and energy policy move forward at COP26? – GB News

COP26 is very serious, and we had better hope it gets somewhere because if it doesn’t get somewhere, then we are all going to be in a lot of trouble. I think three things need to come out of it. The first thing that we need to do is deliver […]

Is the COP26 agenda making the energy crisis worse? – GB News
