Lies, more lies and dirty statistics.
Today, the UK media (News Papers, TV, Radio, etc) have reported a government projection that says that Britain will face an energy crisis within 8 years.
I can understand the drama. It sells News Papers of course.
But it is simply not true when one looks at the evidence.
Grid parity (re; my blog post of 20 August 2008) is here and now in many alternative and sustainable energy generation technologies. Solar panel systems are growing exponentially in power feeds and falling in cost. The volume is not here now to meet energy that’s consumed now. But by 2017 it will.
