Kumbaya to the great green God

The Holyrood Parliament was the venue for the chief executive of Aggreko to describe the Scottish Government's wishful thinking on renewables in the terms above.  Aggreko is a Glasgow based FTSE 100 company operating in 29 countries.  Aggreko's Rupert Soames also expressed his view that
Mr Salmond’s policies fail to recognise “the cold realities” of financing and engineering expensive new forms of green technology.
The Telegraph version of the encounter is here and the Scotsman version here.

16.11.10: The full 21 minute speech can be found here.


  1. I think his comments apply to the whole of the UK, NOT just Scotland.
