Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One more note (received by email):

"Professor", Hughes did some earlier work on how expensive the gas backup to wind was, which was published by that former Tory Chancellor's so called think tank. (I refuse to clutter up my mind with their names!)
It was extensively and conclusively debunked by Robert Gross of Imperial, who gave evidence to the relevant Parliamentary committee.
I commented on the FT. http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/2e0945e2-4a09-11e2-8002-00144feab49a.html#comment-3447592

That would be Nigel Lawson's Global Warming Policy Foundation. As deceptively named as the Renewable Energy Foundation. For Lawson's tink-tonk's links to a certain type of energy industry, see here.

For Hughes and Gross, see here on ET.
