Minister Sceptical of Heat Pumps

Unnamed minister quoted in The Times

“Heat pumps are a complete distraction, I’m not sure they work. I’m not sure they’ll ever work. Hydrogen could be a game changer — but that is not a given… Nobody is going to win an election telling people they are going to be cold and poor. There is no constituency for hair shirt greenery. If hydrogen doesn’t work and there isn’t a technology that does then there is going to have to be a rethink. Most members of the cabinet . . . don’t think a Conservative government is going to lower people’s standard of living.”
