Tory MP Michael Fallon has replaced John Hayes as energy minister. Last week Fallon questioned whether "specific targets, for example on...climate change, are the best way of focusing our spending where it is most needed".

Last year Fallon questioned whether “specific targets, for example on…climate change, are the best way of focusing our spending where it is most needed“.

Fallon’s predecessor was criticised by green activists for his views on wind farms, but going by statements like this, Fallon may be even worse.

As you’re here, we have something to ask you. What we do here to deliver real news is more important than ever. But there’s a problem: we need readers like you to chip in to help us survive. We deliver progressive, independent media, that challenges the right’s hateful rhetoric. Together we can find the stories that get lost.

We’re not bankrolled by billionaire donors, but rely on readers chipping in whatever they can afford to protect our independence. What we do isn’t free, and we run on a shoestring. Can you help by chipping in as little as £1 a week to help us survive? Whatever you can donate, we’re so grateful - and we will ensure your money goes as far as possible to deliver hard-hitting news.

    Let’s hope so, artificially inflated power prices caused by the ridiculous subsidies for ineffective wind farms are killing our elderly whilst enriching the landed classes.

    He should have replaced Ed Davey and Greg Barker as well. We need an Energy Department, not a global climate change temple.
