Last week I was at a meeting in the House of Commons with climate changeÂ minister Ian Pearson. He said that the UK had not only met our Kyoto targets but surpassed them. So that lets ROJ off the hook then…
But then news arrives of plans to ban/restrict the use of cars over 10 years old – does this mean I’m rebuilding the largest mantelpiece ornament of all time?

And why is all the fuss purely about CO2? Methane is 25 times more powerful as a greenhouse gas, and nitrous oxide is 300 times more. Surely any climate change bill should take on board a multiple gas approach to mitigation – mind you, whatever the government does, it’s bound to be bad for us petrol heads.
Instead of mitigating against climate change we need to adapt to those elements that are inevitable. Plant palm trees in Preston and produce more convertible motor cars…!
