If we must burn, let’s burn British
Ed Conway provides an excellent analysis of the fossil fuel energy we will need if we are to “go green”, but there was one point he did not make explicitly: if we need fuels to make the constituents of wind turbines and solar panels, let’s use our own (“To be clean and green, we first need to get dirty”, News Review, last week).
We have 28 years before 2050. In that time let’s use our own North Sea oil and gas, coking coal from Cumbria and shale gas from fracking. There is no point in buying all the energy we need to get to net zero when we have our own resources which are cheaper and more reliable.
