Waste Plan workshop is rubbish

Link to story online

The South London Waste Plan's workshop, in fact this whole consultation, thus far is a public relations masterclass: Offer only limited information in carefully managed stages; avoid answering any sensitive questions; ask leading questions in questionnaires to manipulate the outcome and avoid using alarming language. Of course, thanks to Labour and Conservative MEP's, incinerators don't have to be called incinerators any more they are now 'energy from waste' plants. The fact that 83 per cent of the heat produced is lost and that incinerators emit twice as much carbon per unit of electricity generated is conveniently overlooked.
