Political parties publish lengthy manifestos for two reasons: because they want to be seen as credible across a range of policy issues and because they don’t expect people to look into the small print.

So it’s not hard to be unfamiliar with the policy score sheet of each party in any particular area.

But as one of many people in the UK interested in climate change, and even more specifically around carbon capture and storage, I make it my business to know how each party proposes to tackle the challenge.
