Learning from History


Coal and oil are the key ingredients that have lifted much of mankind from a Stone Age existence to a world of comfort and plenty never before seen.

The Greens would have us close every coal mine and coal power station and their policies would also close most of our oil and metal refineries. And they will subsidise and mandate stupid alternative energy schemes whose main effect will be to boost backup gas consumption, increase electricity charges and increase network instability.

We should be careful what we wish for. Not long ago we were using wooden ploughs and all energy came from biofuels. Labour was cheap but food was scarce and expensive. Is this the green future?
