” …The UK has coal emissions of only 114 megatons out of 14,231 megatons. China has 6,946.  What is the point of converting 114 megatons to renewables, when even a 10% replacement of China’s coal with gas would save, at a conservative 50%, 350 megatons… “

” …Natural gas is not perfect, but it is not perfectly evil either. We are on the cusp of an energy transformation similar to that of oil over coal a hundred years ago and coal over wood before that. But we have UK energy actors in the new troika of Nuclear, Renewables and CCS proving the Upton Sinclair Theorem…. “
