British MEP Caroline Jackson has called on UK local authorities to embrace waste incineration with energy recovery alongside recycling to help divert waste from landfills. British politicians "lack courage" and have "allowed green fundamentalists to demonise incineration and spread misinformation", she writes in a new pamphlet.
