And it really is a major problem.
Here’s a piece about geothermal energy. OK, great, lovely, why not? We should indeed be looking at all possible sources.
What’s the one really rather important thing that he doesn’t mention?
Yup, that’s right: price.
There is no shortage of energy: there’s not even a shortage of useful energy.
There’s just a shortage of useful non fossil fuel energy at a price we’d like to pay. Which makes the price of alternative energy sources the most important point about them, not something to be ignored.
All of which means that Mr. Carrington gains this blog’s highly coveted (and entirely new) “climate change twat of the day award”.
