When politicians promise action on the environment, their actions often end up being counter-productive. They are either superficial attempts to grab headlines, or clumsy, unpopular, punitive measures that give environmental politics a bad name.
If a government is serious about the risks of climate
change, for example, it doesn't build homes on flood plains. If it is genuinely
concerned about the growth in emissions from aviation, it shouldn't plan to
treble airport capacity. If it knows that that 15 of the world's 17 fisheries
are at the point of collapse, it can't make policy as if those stocks are
healthy and will last forever.
