Newsnight went to town on renewables last night, while I was down the pub after Cities of London and Westminster CLP's General Committee. Hat tip to zerochampion. No one should doubt the difficulties of achieving the targets. But if Gordon wants to appear visionary as Labour Party leader, he is going to need to get up to speed on just how much electoral support there is for clean renewables, and put the resources of the state behind the technologies to achieve tough EU renewable targets. That will include exploring tidal lagoons as recommended by the Sustainable Development Commission.
