Wannabe planetary saviour goes to jail

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…
