Abstract

In this week’s speech to the Conservative Party (virtual) Conference, the Prime Minister acknowledged the savaging administered by ‘Mother Nature’ through the Covid-19 pandemic. He promoted a vision for ourfuture where, by harnessing ‘basic natural phenomena’ we could ‘bounce back greener’, with the government leading a ‘green industrial revolution’. I’m all in favour of the green industrial revolution. But, whilst the PM saw ‘hundreds of thousands if not millions of jobs’ being created in ‘solar, hydrogen...carbon capture and storage’, the most natural and greenest fuel of them all, biomethane, did not even get a mention.
