The Association for Conservation of Energy are worthy fellows, and have just published a detailed and devastating exposé of DECC's blatant manipulation of data to advance the case for building new nuclear power plants.
They are outraged ! "A corruption of governance", they fume. "The figures have been fiddled ... the Coalition Government’s decision to continue supporting new nuclear power was not based on its own evidence ... Why has the Government wasted time, effort and money on its deliberative discussion on the various pathways to 2050, when in fact the decision to use nuclear power has already been made?"
So much, so Huhne. Why, then, do the worthy ACE then prostrate themselves at the feet of this corrupter of governance thus ?
"This Association deeply regrets the resignation of the Rt Hon Chris Huhne. We pay tribute to the quite remarkable leadership he has shown during his 20 months in office. We are confident that his successor will seek to build upon the remarkable legacy he has left, and will seek to work equally closely with him towards achieving the goals for which Chris Huhne was striving"
Is this what we call cognitive dissonance ? Grow up, ACE, the man's a complete **** !
