Government Policy towards net Zero

The governments investment in this Net Zero Strategy appears to amount to little more than what farmers received for CAP payments and a minuscule amount compared to what they gave their cronies for Track & Pray. So its going to be very thinly spread.
 
The most important thing about siting any thermal station is the cooling water. Hence all except one nuclear stations are on the coast. Trawsfynydd was the exception which would fit the lake 'cos it was only 800Mw. Any bigger and the lake wouldn't have coped in warm weather.


You know what I am saying, they won't put the nasty Nuclear Energy near where posh people live.

So why aren't they using that waste heat to heat people's homes and heat industry ?

This is the craziest article I’ve ever read. It has basically ignored the whole point of eating local which also means eating seasonally.
in fact, the article completely ignores seasonality, save to say that if you are going to eat food outside uk season, you should eat the foreign in season equivalent!

It's just a nonsense article. The Gruniad back to normal business after a couple of sensible articles recently.

There was a debate on the radio about nuclear recently, the anti chap said that the biggest reason it will fail is that all the current ones are on the coast and they are going to be flooded by rising sea levels.

Well he’s a tit then because the Sainted Isle is actually rising due to the Isotonic tilt ... albeit by mm per year

My answer:

Patience

I am going large on patience ( cue laughing wife) as eventually "the rubber will hit the road" either we will see it is all very urgent or as I suspect, a mostly cult like addiction created by, I have no idea.

"Patience is the ability to endure difficult circumstances. Patience may involve perseverance in the face of delay; tolerance of provocation without responding in disrespect/anger; or forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties."
And a good antidote to rising blood pressure when we’re powerless to change the cult.

Basically-

Plant this country full of trees and cut down the Amazon to grow our food.
They have been busy cutting down the Amazon for 40 years and still are !.The rain forest is much more diverse in species than a few oaks planted in this country .How on earth will it make any difference .Stop the felling and growing soya will have a positive effect as it's such a big country Brazil .But I fear it's to late as the corrupt government will not stop it!

The Rolls Royce Nuclear power device is about the size used in Nuclear subs .. which should power a small city. In which case there will be lots of em.

That seems a logical way forward but seeing as nuclear power stations have 24/7 armed guards, that will be a lot of guarding ... plus servicing etc

Easier to run than an AD plant though

Crikey, the patients have definately taken over the assylum now. OR they are someway going to be personaly gaining financially in their future.
Because there is NO human made climate change, all there is is too many people on the planet now, Stop having so many kids will quickly solve problems.
Rising sea levels Ha Ha,it was found quite a while ago that many of the measurement points were in fact SINKING. All this carbon / co2 is just a load of Crap to try to frighten us ordinary plebs into doing as we are told, control control control. Sadly too many of the ---z list so called celebs ( most people have never heard of them, )have a loud voice through the press, whom we all know could not tell the truth about anything at any time as it does not sell news. oops, rant over.
