I see pup and now ciro have moved onto another thread that I cannot post on to continue their blinkered and narrow minded diatribe on anti wind power and pro filthy nuclear and fossil fuel.
Ciro is now quoting reams of figures and facts to support nuclear and fossil fuel use, all perfectly true of course and completely irelevent.
I have to sit on the side lines clearing my computer of the continual malware attacks from vested interest (I know who), because I am banned from free comment on the rest of the forum, why is that?
Of course wind and other alternative energy systems will need major subsidies until they are well established and we must be prepared to pay more to achieve any of the essential CO2 targets.
Of course nuclear and fossil fuel energy production will be cheaper in simple monetary terms for the future than alternatives, this is obvious to a one cell life form, let alone an ordinary human. This is exactly THE reason why we have a serious ecological problem. Cheap filthy energy production for the sake of profits at any cost.
In Japan it built their economy since WW2 and now they can see the real cost.
I fully agree that governments are doing things completely wrong on energy. It is because thay are trying to organise it for the benefit of big business within the current capitalist greed system. It dont work and it MUST be obvious by now that it doesnt.
We vote our governments in to RULE over issues like our energy needs, NOT for them to be controlled on these issues by private greed.
Until control is taken from these vested interests,there will be no real progress and the environment will get progresively worse and our standard of living will fall along with our environment, as we try to fight disaters with less and less available resources both in money and energy.
How many reactors are working in Japan????????
