Gibson pipped at the post

News release
Immediate release

Highlands and Islands SNP MSP Rob Gibson has been pipped at the post on being named green politician of the year at the Scottish renewable green energy awards to Green Politician Patrick Harvie.

The Co convenor of the Scottish Green Party who is also convernor of Holyrood's Transport and Climate Change Committee beat Rob who was short listed along with SNP Colleague Alyn Smith MEP and Lib Dem MSP Liam Macarthur.

Congratulating Patrick on his success Rob said…

"Renewable energy is going to be the backbone of Scotland's future. Therefore it for all politicians to get behind it and make sure that it works. A dereliction of this is a snub to the dynamic and sustainable future which Scotland (with it's wealth of renewable resources) is due. Energy independence is an essential tool for national sustainability."

Rob who will be among a delegation among the delegation attending the Copenhagen summit said that green politics are more important now than ever.

"The fact is we are now in the climate change era. It is up to politicians to try and pull in the right direction to make sure that we don't suffer overly."
