Nevertheless, it only called 8 witnesses to give oral evidence, and did so only 2 weeks after the written evidence had been gathered. The final report has been released only 1 week after the evidence sessions. The speed of this release suggests to me that the EAC went into this inquiry having already decided on their course of action - a call for a moratorium - and that they have not properly considered the evidence in front of them, nor sought a proper breadth of representation from their oral witnesses." The entire article is very interesting actually.
Just had a look on gridwatch at where our electricity comes from on a nippyish day like today. 40% coal, 30% nuclear, 10% gas and 10% wind. I don't know where the rest comes from, probably imported from Europe. I just find it incredible that anyone should think we could survive on renewable energy sources at the present time. It did occur to me though that if the green lobby was really concerned about CO2 emissions they should be picketting the docks bringing in imported coal and supporting shale development. In their terms it would make so much more sense.
RE: Sorry, it's genuine
Quote from Caroline Lucas.....When it came to a freeze on fracking, Labour abstained. Instead they served up their own superficial tweaks, lacking in detail and riddled with loopholes. She has just been on Newsnight to talk about the Greek elections and her first sentence was about....Fracking!!!!
RE: The Knives are out
When you think about it, the fraccing industry relied on eminent scientific experts and peer reviewed research whilst the antis relied on a drug soaked dancer from an eighties pop group and a rather eccentric dressmaker. I just cannot understand how the antis lost the argument.
RE: The Knives are out
Well they do seem a little evangelical!! We just seem to oppose anything. Railways, wind turbines, fracking wells, nuclear plants, gas plants, every damn thing. No wonder we never get anything done and just adds cost for the poor equity investors. Still I'm sure that doesn't trouble Dame Vivienne too much!!
Think it was DIVILIKE on about college money being cut, if I was in power I'd close all the colleges and sack all the teachers. I'd force employers to train the staff as they are the ones that benefit, ie THE RICH Namby pamby MP's no spine, letting loonies dictate.
