My first question is why do all governments have national economic advantage as its primary driver? My second queries the sustainability of such a folly when we know fossil fuels are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive (in actual cost and to the environment) to extract.
The third is the signal we send to the international community – what argument do we have to stop the Chinese pressing ahead with their proposed 600 new coal-fired power stations no matter what the carbon differential between the two projects?
We live in an inter-connected world and future economic thinking has to be based on global rather than national benefit, otherwise our desire to be the best will become the world's downfall.
