This is nothing new as we all had predicted it. And we should remeber that Gas is also a fossil fuel.
The pessimism rather than the optimism is evident in this brief introductionto the item which is published elsewhere.
I would like to see how the £200,000 million has been calculated for it is nigh impossible to spend that amount of money from a standing start in TEN YEARS! Please define how it can be done.
In the background therefore why has it not been considered to also tap in to the surplus electricity from Iceland that is available from Hyfro-Electric and Thermal-Electric sources. The country cannot be that afraid of becoming reliant on this source of energy, for if that is the case the Gas link to Norway (with its limited 12 year life-sopn of gas availability) would never have been built. Again any comments would be welcomed.
