Seeking election as London’s mayor, formerly sane Boris Johnson caves to the great greenist panic:

Where once he praised George Bush for deciding to “scrumple up the Kyoto protocol and use it for putting practice in the Oval Office” – a rejection he called “right not just for America but for the world” – he now described global warming as “the biggest challenge of our generation”.

The man who attacked “crucifying our landscape with wind farms which, even when they are in motion, would barely pull the skin off a rice pudding”, now wants “to provide more renewable energy”. And far from, as in the past, deriding energy saving as a waste of effort, he now promises to give council tax rebates to those who achieve it.

BoJo’s only chance for an out: this piece was written by factdodging Independent island boy Geoffrey Lean, and therefore may not be reliable.
