I get increasingly annoyed at the idiocy of politicians who think they can ignore stuff like this. Regular readers may have noticed.
THE British Government must act quickly and resolutely to plug the yawning energy
gap or face blackouts within six years, industry leaders said today. The call
followed a survey showing that three-quarters of business executives, academics
and politicians believed the lights would start to go out by 2012 as the country's
ageing nuclear power stations were progressively closed down. It also comes as
the Government plunges into a study of how to feed the country's electricity
needs while at the same time meeting its international obligations to cut
emissions of carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels which create climate change.
