Absolutely spot on. This crisis is to a large extent of our making. Natural gas always did seem too good to burn. It’s a valuable raw material. We are also over reliant on it for fertiliser production and we need to wean ourselves off it. I’d say that will take decades to achieve without crashing food supplies.
In the short term we need to ensure we have sufficient ammonium nitrate for next years crops. Simple as. Priority number one.
Why isn’t somebody doing something? They seem to be fiddling while Rome burns.
Tony Blair started the big switch to burning gas, following on from Maggie shutting the mines.
