THE Greens wish to build a Forth tunnel, a construction project which would
involve an enormous amount of carbon emissions (“Rail tunnel under Firth of
Forth is at heart of Green Party vision”, The Herald, January 23).
They want us to travel by train, whose electric power will always be mostly
generated by fossil fuels because most of the time the wind does not blow
at the optimum speed. If we must travel by car it should also be electric,
but according to Volkswagen we would have to travel 50,000 miles in our
expensive iGolf before the emissions produced in the manufacturing process
are expunged to become carbon-neutral. Next they will be telling us to ride
on unicorns.
