    my name is Anna Barbato
    I’m working at a Research on National Implementation Policies of E.U Directives
    on Climate Change issues ( Dir. 2003/30/EC:Directive on the promotion of
    the use of biofuels or other renewable fuels for transport.)

    I would like to know if there are any kind of incentives and initiatives
    to implement the Directive at the local level (eg. London City Level)

    Thank you very much,

    best regards

    Anna Barbato

    The Government can launch all the renewable fuel agencies it likes, but until it acts and takes care of the easy “we can do it now” stuff (space for bicycles on trains, reduce the huge subsidies on aviation fuels etc) then I really can’t take anything it says on the matter seriously. If all it can manage is the politically easy 5% biofuels then it’s just tinkering with the margins rather than making
    a real effort.

    Tony Blair’s reaction when it was pointed out that extra runways at airports don’t exactly match up with his green rhetoric? “Ah well we are looking to greener technologies in the future..”
    ie. Rather than make hard decisions now we’ll leave it to someone else..
