Yes, there is greater calorific value in hydrocarbons. But, the green age has to start somewhere. Hydro electric has scaped our mountainsides rivers and lochs for a long time now. And still a far more appealing way to produce power than a nuclear power plant. Both are a bit more environmentally friendly than burning hydrocarbons. Well, until the point of decommissioning perhaps for the nuke .:-) And if we get rid of burning fossil fuels the our polyhalite might be worth a bit more for the sulphur content. ;-)
Rocal, you said 'When the hell are the folks who listen to these non-scientific, mathematically-challenged hobbits going to realise that, in simple economic terms, wind-farms don't bleedin'-well work! ' I say 'I couldn't agree more '
It's almost inevitable that fracking schemes will be made nationally significant infrastructure projects before long and move from the TCPA planning regime where they are being held up by local authority planning committees on political grounds to the DCO regime under the Planning Act 2008. That will help to speed development of a fracking industry up.
