Has the 'greenest government ever' gassed itself?

A few weeks ago, I was chatting to a group of people from environmentally-minded UK think-tanks when the issue of the "greenest government ever" came up.
In case you've forgotten, David Cameron pledged to lead such a government on becoming Prime Minister in 2010.

Eighteen months on, and one of my companions put it this way: "They've already lost it on everything but climate change, and they're just about clinging onto that".

The question being asked in similar circles now is whether Saturday's announcement on gas-fired power stations means that climate policy has effectively "gone" as well.
