Economics provide the rational basis for decision making, prioritisation, resource allocation and policy formulation. Green economics should be no different although new mechanisms may need to be devised to put a 'cost' on the impact to climate and environment. Absolutism, perfectionism, an assumption of infinite resources and a jejune insistence on instant results are all enemies of wise and effective action. Examples of measures to avoid:

  • Taxing or regulating energy-intensive businesses out of the UK; import of finished products
  • Ineffectual or counter-productive schemes
  • Politically motivated projects
