Ofgem, the energy regulator, again warns of an impending energy crisis. We can put blame for this squarely at the door of the European Union.
Their energy rules, emission targets and climate fundamentalism will turn off the lights. Their ruinous Large Combustion Plant Directive will lead to the closure of the plants that provide us with a third of our energy by 2015.
The renewables directive pushes our energy market from resources that actually work to windfarms that only work when the wind blows. Windfarms also break when the wind blows too much. What genius came up with that idea…?
With news that Britain is sitting on a goldmine of shale gas, it gives us more reasons to dump the EU and their calamitous policies… if only to keep the lights on.
