Editor: The UK is calling for more coal and nuclear.
But here in Ontario, Dalton McGuinty and George Smitherman just keep on jambing up the wind farms even though anyone with an ounce of sense should know better.
Listen up Dalton and George, it’s over, everyone but you two seen to get the picture.
Quit wasting the taxpayers money! CO2 doesn’t cause global warming.
Get your act together or resign!
The UK must invest more in nuclear and clean coal energy and put less emphasis on wind power if it wants a secure low-carbon future, business leaders say.
The CBI says government energy policy is “disjointed” and it is urging a “more balanced” energy mix.
The current approach means the UK might miss climate change targets, it added.
The government said putting in place a balanced mix of renewables, new nuclear and cleaner fossil fuels was at the heart of its energy policy.
But the CBI is calling for more action.
“The government’s disjointed approach is deterring the private sector investment needed to get our energy system up to scratch, bolster security and cut emissions,” said CBI deputy director general John Cridland.
“While we have generous subsidies for wind power, we urgently need the national planning statements needed to build new nuclear plants.
“If we carry on like this we will end up putting too many of our energy eggs in one basket.”
