A stupid answer to a silly question

"If Carbon Capture and Burial is the answer, it must have been a very silly question." For more, see the written submission from the Carbon Sense Coalition to the New Zealand Parliamentary Enquiry into the ETS.

Yet the EU is pumping money into this fantasy, while our MPs have sold the pass. All three main parties agree with it.

How is it that we can get so excited about penny ante expenses, when the collective is happily squandering £4 billion of our money on a complete and utter fantasy, for no gain whatsoever?

If MPs cost £200,000 a year each, or thereabouts, then they are worth the money if they do their jobs. But, as Booker recently observed, if they are not doing their jobs, why are we even paying them salaries?
