when

I have yet to see a publication by say Friends of the Earth on
energy which does not say that one must first reduce energy
consumption by things like insulation and only then consider
"alternative" methods of generation.

Your point is moot.

It's highly relevant to the wider issue of building expensive alternative energy
generation when half our homes aren't insulated to the the latest standards.

The money should be spent on *giving* us the insulation for free or at notional
cost
IMHO.

    The money shouldn't be spent by the govt. It should be spent by the
people who want whatever it is; alt. energy, or more insulation. Otherwise,
you have a Nanny State.

Yes, it seems a little 'nannying' may be in order.

There is virtually *never* a legitimate reason for state nannying -
certainly not with this.   If the case is compelling, then people will
implement.    This is an indication that it is not.
