Now the nuclear industry is holding out the begging bowl.


By Paul Homewood


Just when we thought the war was over, it is starting to dawn on some London hacks that it has only just begun. Beyond the Red Wall are rumblings of a new revolt, utterly unanticipated by No 10 and overlooked by a liberal media still shell-shocked by the election. With its drive to “green” the economy at any cost, the Tory party has seemingly decided to celebrate its populist landslide by bogging down the country in zero-carbon paternalism. And so we career towards another People vs Establishment conflict that could be more explosive even than that sparked by the referendum.

A savvy politician like Boris Johnson can still reverse No 10’s green strategy, which moved on this week from banning petrol and diesel cars to the revival of onshore wind farms. He must – all the ingredients for another seismic uprising are already simmering.

First is…

    Wind’s doing well tonight, 2.44GW. Coal’s doing awfully, a mere 3.5GW. Good job it’s being phased out.

    Problem is, the other parties are just as mad about it, if not more so. At least until it starts costing them votes.

  5. Adam Gallon says:

    The issue is, that all mainstream parties support the climate scam, primarilly to raise tax money & doubtless a very keen lobbying from car manufacturers & “Green energy” subsidy farmers.

    Adam, and the wind will soon die down, but coal will be able to keep up and even increase. Too bad you don’t use the amazing abundance of natural gas the UK is sitting on. Then you could have cheap abundant and clean *reliable* energy.

    Only 26% of people aged 18-24 understand that nuclear power is a low carbon source of electricity, compared with 76% for renewables such as wind and solar, according to a new poll by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).

    Older people are more likely to say that nuclear power is low carbon.

    So school climate protesters are unlikely to be well-informed about the claimed issues?

    Utility chief warns that Germany faces potential blackouts as it exits coal

    Germany faces potential power shortages in the next few years as it removes nuclear and coal-fired power plants from the grid, warned Andreas Schierenbeck, CEO of the Düsseldorf-based power company Uniper, in an interview with Daniel Wetzel of the newspaper Die Welt.
    . . .
    In the next three years, Germany could see a shortfall of more than seven gigawatts (GW) of “secure generation capacity” to cover peak loads, Schierenbeck told die Welt. “This means that there will be a shortfall in capacity equivalent to at least seven large power plants,” Schierenbeck said. “I consider this to be worrying.”

    NB he’s trying to sell gas power plants.
