My gripe is with folks moaning about the project and citing pollution and environmental harm as a reason to oppose it then state how wonderful it is to see hundreds of cars trucks and helicopters invade their park and give the environment not one shred of care! Hypocritical, transparent, shallow and a great shot into their own foot! T.wat.s!!
It's the fact that hundreds of diesel powered vehicles all producing the very same NXo gasses that AMEC have pursued detail to the far end of a f/rt from YP pass within a few meters of the mine site every single day that gets me.
Not to mention the much lauded heritage steam trains and the amazing amount of pollution generated by the many steam trains through the moors and park every day of the year, and even more so in the tourist season, when the weather is warmer and the pollution stays around even more so. I live less than 100 metres from the train line and can vouch for the amount of pollution generated. HOWEVER it is wonderful to hear the steam trains go past on a regular basis. So it's always a trade off. The amount of pollutants generated by our lovely heritage steam railway will absolutely dwarf the amount generated by the modern generators at the YP site. Just another example of how our beautiful moors were created by our rich industrial and farming heritage, they wouldn't be so unique without our rich past, and there should be no double standards about our future too. Our NYM are there because we created the landscape and vistas. The NYMP planners have to remember that.
...gives an insight into jet a/c emissions. If the CNP or others interested in the effect that a couple of generators will have in the locale, they should perhaps have a look at what happens in the real world. It just may be that a/c landing/taking off at MAN/LBA/ MME/ NCL - all airports around the NYNP and Dales happen to make a lot of pollution that lands in our area. Just something to think about, like the fact that Ferrybridge power station turns off the scrubbers when the weather is dank and overcast to avoid the cost of doing so.
borolad, look forward to that supremely delicious and satisfying first sip as we survey what will become the mine that we all helped to create (and print money for us). Just keep up that recovery mate because that is the most important thing for you isn't it? Sheps8 interesting point you make and in the real world that is a genuine direct comparison of a sort, though the production levels of Nxo gases of both the generators and the amount of emissions during the tour I have no idea about. Certainly I agree completely that if emissions of any kind are created in abundance from any source they are still as damaging, but if permission is sort for as it was by the production management of the Tour (I am assuming it was) and if it was readily given, then there can surely be no objection regarding our generators? It will of course be a straw that those who feel they are sinking and the wellies are filling up, will grab. Bring it on…ATB
Morning Scotty, the level of detail required by AMEC on behalf of the NYMNP planners over the NXo gases released into the atmosphere by the generators over the lifetime of the construction phase in comparison to a single event the 'Tour de Yorkshire' has not bypassed my radar either, I wonder if the NYMNP should assess the amount and damage the effect of all Bull S/ hit released into the atmosphere within their patch.
Read that however you wish it's just as relevant metaphorically as factually ;-/
Hi Trooper, yes thanks things are getting better, just back after a third stay in Hull Royal. Slower recovery than I anticipated but looks like I have finally got rid of series of infections. Thankfully the Sirius price is providing a tonic just now and looking forward to moving into my own blue area in a couple of weeks time, a couple more pennies will do the trick.
When we get C France finally giving the nod then we can all rejoice and I'll join you at that gate with a Bailleys ATB
