Wind of change reaches Museum of Scotland

Stuart Haszeldine
Last evening a debate was held in the Museum of Scotland entitled "Scotland's energy policy is a load of hot air".

It featured Niall Stewart, the CEO of Scottish Renewables, and Professor Stuart Haszeldine of Edinburgh University speaking against the motion.  They were countered by Andrew Montford and Conservative MEP Struan Stevenson. There are several accounts of the debate available though notably, I can find none which come from the Scottish Renewables perspective. Here are two.

Support for those arguing for the motion grew from 66 before the debate to 126 after.  Those supporting Messrs Stewart and Haszeldene  grew rather more modestly from 36 to 50.
