Darling, you're shrinking the emissions

Hey Alistair Darling has finally woken up to the emissions from the transport sector in the UK.

Ever since Transport was peeled off from Environment when Prescott's empire, DETR, was split into Defra. ODPM and DfT, Transport has been somewhat, um, unreconstructed, when it comes to the environment.

But with the advent of yesterday's Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation and its incentive to work towards 5% (well, it's better than nothing) biofuel proportion in road fuel, it's taking a turn in the right direction.

Now, Renewable Air Transport Fuel Obligation anyone?
