Change at the ministry

Paul Wheelhouse MSP has this week taken over as Minister for Environment and Climate Change at Holyrood.

Whilst it is not clear that he has said very much publicly about climate change he arrives at a fascinating juncture.

The 'groundbreaking' Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 was significantly justified by the Stern report and the IPCC fourth assessment report.  The latter has faced growing credibility difficulty and now the much quoted Stern Report has been the subject of a devastating critique by MP Peter Lilley.
