    “UK total energy consumption amounts to approximately 2.2Twh/annum, most of which goes towards transportation and heating with these sectors dominated by fossil fuels. UK electricity demand is about 0.4Twh/annum, or less than 20% of total energy demand.

    For any political party to believe we are going to be at net zero by 2050 (Boris) let alone by 2030 (R Mong Bailey) is delusional nonsense. We have already ruined large amounts of the countryside and seascapes by plastering vast areas with wind turbines and solar panels – we would have to cover a huge part of the country in rapid quick time to make 50% of the energy supply via renewables and then plant the rest of the country with rapidly growing trees like Leylandii to get to net zero. Thank goodness I won’t be around.”

    I was rather hoping now we are cast adrift from Europe, we might fetch up in the Caribbean and enjoy a change of climate.
