NEWS: It's Renewables & Nuclear
A while ago the BBC launched an Energy Calculator that allowed us all to determine what mix of energy sources we should use and what reduction in demand, if any, was reasonable.
Well the results are in and I am pleasantly surprised. As the above chart shows the average participant wants to cut Fossil Fuel use by approx 60%, increase Nuclear use by approx 50% (grrrr), increase the use of renewables by a whopping 1600% approx, reduce energy imports to more or less zero and reduce demand by 10%.
Fascinating. And 100,000 people is as good a poll or think tank as any one could want. The people have spoken...lets get on with it.
