.... This website is in favour of using fossil fuels efficiently. It is also in favour of using renewables, but they must be used appropriately. So far, 'appropriate use' is rare - which is one reason why our energy bills in the UK are increasing so quickly.
The main greenhouse gas is water vapour. Most Physicists and Chemists know this.
Carbon dioxide's effect on climate is about one tenth to one twentieth that of water vapour. Tiny, and definitely unmeasurable.
There is therefore no valid reason for replacing gas or coal-fired power stations with renewables at several times the price.
It is completely and utterly futile.
The balance sheets of every industry are being scrutinised constantly, apart from one: 'decarbonisation'.
Carbon dioxide emissions 'targets' are presently exempt from the normal rules of commerce.
Large numbers of us are wondering what is going on...
