Call to declare emergency as Britain faces energy crisis



Press Release



 

 
London, 18 November — Net Zero Watch has called on Boris Johnson to declare an energy emergency.
 
The announcement comes as fears grow over a looming energy and energy security crisis, with spiralling prices hitting industry and consumers hard, and some security analysts warning that it will be necessary to shut down large manufacturing businesses over the winter.
 
Net Zero Watch director Dr Benny Peiser said:
 
“We have only one way out in the short term, and that’s for Britain to start using the UK’s massive gas resources. Households and businesses are being hit hard by high gas prices, and the only way to reduce them is to develop our domestic supply. What is worse, electricity prices are set by the gas price, so consumers have a double whammy. And high energy prices are driving up inflation, so in reality it’s a triple whammy.”
 
The British Geological Survey estimates that the total volume of shale gas in the Bowland shale basin is between 820 and 2200 trillion cubic feet, with a central estimate of some 1300 trillion cubic feet. It is estimated that if 25 trillion cubic feet of this huge resource could be recovered it would be worth £625 billion at current gas prices.
 
Net Zero Watch says that the government needs to reverse course on its energy policy as a matter of urgency, and put energy costs and security of supply at the centre of national security. Dr Peiser said:
 
“A secure domestic energy supply is vital. That means treating Britain’s shale gas resources and its exploration as national security and infrastructure asset.”
 
“Even if the shale gas moratorium was lifted tomorrow, it would take at least 12 months to get the gas flowing. But the Government needs to take strong steps now, in order to send out a clear signal to investors. Otherwise the energy and cost of living crises will become permanent, posing an existential threat to this government.”

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
