Tory green man..........not very green

This is Peter Ainsworth, the Conservative environment spokesman, and a remarkably open Q&A in Guardian 2 today (yes I got that far - a symptom of a longish train journey to the other side of London and back).

He owns a people carrier and has a carbon footprint of 16 tonnes a year.

Well, at least he knows what his footprint is and acknowledges that the people carrier is a "guilty secret" while presumably not realising that you can actually get relatively green people carriers these days....and he says he worries about ice caps in the Himalayas melting.

So we are getting somewhere...............slowly
