Locog's carbon omissions

After London 2012 scrapped its bid promise to offset carbon emissions two years ago environmentalists are now reduced to worrying about whether it will come up with an energy efficient Olympic cauldron. They didn't manage it with the torch saying four years wasn't enough time to complete the job. David Stubbs, Head of Sustainability at Locog, claimed the promise was scrapped because offsetting emissions took the focus away from Britain. A strange explanation. They must have realised this was the case when they made the promise.

The turbines aren't turning, barges aren't carrying materials in and out of the Park. Will Locog be taking an early caldarium?
