Walport’s UK Energy Fantasy Does Not Add Up
Another Government Scientist Providing Politicians With Renewable Energy Calculations That “Don’t Add Up”. No Wonder Government Is So Dysfunctional.
By Paul Homewood
Bishop Hill had a post the other day, about a presentation on climate change given to the cabinet by Chief Scientist, Sir Mark Walport, seen at right.
One of the slides shown was this one on various scenarios for electricity generation in the UK in the brave new world. (Sorry for the quality, the original is no better!)
So I thought I would have a closer look at one of the options, “Higher Renewables”, to see whether they made any sense. Let me first say that the presentation does not state when this is all targeted for, so I cannot make any comment about the likelihood of technology for CCS and marine (tidal) becoming available in time.
