Wannabe planetary saviour goes to jail

Posted on timeMarch 11th, 2013 by userPali Gap


Chris Huhne  is the UK’s former minister for Energy and Climate Change. He may be going to jail, having been sentenced to eight months for ‘perverting the course of justice’.  But, for folks like me, he remains unconvicted of a much greater crime of “perverting the course of reason” on the climate debate. Repentant he is not:

Chris Huhne, talking to The Guardian hours before his sentence, said he felt “awful that people I love have been dragged into this gruelling experience“. He added: “I am sorry. I want to say that to family, to friends, to constituents and to colleagues, and more broadly to everybody who cares passionately about the causes I care about, including saving the planet for our children and our grandchildren”.

“Saving the planet” – Oh, the hubris! Lord preserve us…
