The right energy strategy?

The UK government (possibly rightly) is investing in alternative forms of energy production - we have all seen the wind(turbine)farms springing up. However, the real savings in emissions and efficiency are to be made by refining the current big energy producers - oil, gas (and to a much lesser but growing extent) coal- to make them more productive.

If a tenth of the money going into wind turbines was spent on energy-efficiency R&D, we would all save money and the planet would be a better place.
