UK 'Must Spend £110bn To Keep Lights On'

Post by Guest on Wed Jul 13, 2011 9:48 am

I thought that the Lefties on here keep telling us, that there is no crisis? Question

Actually, I find this quite funny, as it puts the Left in a real quandary! Twisted Evil

As we can't build coal burning Power Stations, because of the Co2 emissions, that are "like killing the planet man" but we can't build clean, safe, Thorium Salt Reactors either, because Nuclear is "like killing the planet man"! lol!

I thought the 'green movement' was more liberal than left tbh.

But either way we need to spend more on nuclear and renewables. We cannot afford to build more coal, oil or gas power stations.

Scotland has developed a lot in this area and now generates 50% of it's electricity needs by renewable sources and 30% by nuclear.

There is a target to have 100% renewable capability by 2020, if Scotland can do it, why can the rest of the UK. I still think Nuclear is required and this has to be part of our plans.

The plan is to be able to produce double the electricity needed in Scotland so we can sell it on.

To save any "mis-quoting" Rolling Eyes about the BNP's Policy on Energy, here it is with a straight "copy and paste" from their 2010 Manifesto! Twisted Evil

"• The BNP is committed to research into renewable and quasi-renewable energy
sources and transmission systems, such as wave power, hydrogen fuel, and nuclear
energy.

• The BNP rejects the notion that our nation’s nuclear power stations should be
owned by foreign investors.

• The BNP opposes the punitive taxation mandated by the other parties’ adherence
to the global warming theory and the “carbon credit” racket.

• The BNP will stop the building of wind turbines which are inefficient and blight
the landscape.

• The BNP will investigate clean-burning coal-fired power plants as another method
of dealing with increased energy demands.

The Energy Crisis Must be Addressed

Britain faces a severe energy crisis which has been caused by a combination of an increased population, privatisation, failure of forward planning and the closure of coal-fired power stations.

Once the immigration problem has been dealt with, demand for power will go down. This by itself will not solve the problem, but will significantly alleviate it.

The BNP is urgently committed to a policy of national energy independence, based, as far as possible, on renewable energy sources.

Key BNP Energy Policies

- We shall fund research into renewable and quasi-renewable energy sources and transmission systems, such as wave power, hydrogen fuel, and nuclear energy.

- We shall end the current government’s policy of meeting Britain’s Copenhagen obligations, which are based on the unproved science of ‘man-made’ global warming.

- We shall increase nuclear power generation with a view to providing 40 percent of the UK’s energy requirements. The UK was once a world leader in nuclear power but the technology was discouraged by successive governments and exploited abroad. The last world-class British nuclear power company, Westinghouse, was sold by the Government in 2006.

- We shall ensure that nuclear power stations in Britain are returned to state ownership and not run for the profit of foreign investors."

Sounds fairly similar to the SNP, are you sure the BNP are right wing? Laughing

Amazing how none of the Lefty Liberals who tell us that "there is no energy crisis" haven't posted on this thread though, isn't it! Wink

To be honest Mr D I've not heard anyone say there isn't an energy crisis looming.
