Dr Benny Peiser, Director of the Global Warming Policy Foundation told ELN:
“Chris Huhne has become a dangerous liability for the government. His unpopular green energy policy is adding to rising energy bills, which represent a serious problem for the government.
“If Chris Huhne has his way, Britons will be forced to subsidise renewable energy by approximately £120billion in the next 20 years. Electricity prices are likely to double as a direct result. As a result, many manufacturing firms will either go bankrupt or relocate.
“This is politically and economically unsustainable. It is no surprise that a recently leaked letter by David Cameron’s energy advisers described Huhne’s analysis as “unconvincing” and warned that his green obsession will hit consumers hard.”
