    Abstract

    Environmental sustainability is like pregnancy. You are either sustainable or you are not! The UK Government tells us that it is deeply concerned about global warming but the numbers do not support this claim. Although it trumpets that it has set aside £545 million to underwrite a multiplicity of environmental initiatives, this sum is paltry when compared with the £11.4 billion already committed to widen the M1 motorway; a strategy that will undermine any progress made in other spheres.
