The Guardian is reporting that E.ON has decided to back out of building its new facility at Kingsnorth. They're citing the recession and saying it's being postponed until 2016 - but I suspect it is also in part because of the high profile campaign against it. Surely it can now never be built. Let's hope that Ed Miliband now chooses to rule out all emissions from new coal as a sign of Britain's leadership before the key Copenhagen climate meeting.
