If you're keeping up with this blog you will know that we have written to the Climate Secretary, Ed Davey, to ask him to consider whether or not his ill-considered energy "strategy" may leave him open to a charge of murder in Scotland. The last post on this topic detailed a reminder letter that we had sent because no reply had been received from the original one.
Well, either that reminder started to ring alarm bells in DECC or, more likely, our letters crossed in the post, because a reply has now been received. It is dated the 12th December although it only arrived here on the 21st. You can read it below.

It's not really disappointing because not a great deal was expected from a first exchange, but it is a bit sad that they expect this kind of waffle to satisfy anyone. However, there were a few surprises.
