At the moment the U.K. seems to be going for a mixture of Natural Gas, New Nuclear and Renewables, with the most effort on New Nuclear and Renewables. Most of Europe is now having a lot of trouble with skyrocketing energy prices, too much demand or not enough energy? This seems a bit like the lack of butchers, lack of lorry drivers, lack of farmers. If Europe had enough a few years ago, how come now we do not? France is shouting that the E.U. make them pay too much for their electricity, yet seventy percent of French electricity is produced by their own Nuclear Power Stations. Maybe the people of Europe expect unlimited electricity and heat? When I was growing up in the fifties, we did not have a television or central heating or a freezer or airconditioning or double glazing or solar panels. Maybe people will have to revert to using less energy, afterall, it is not limitless.
