Power struggle - There’s still life in Old King Coal
Sir, – World-wide coal-fired power plants are being built at a faster rate than those being decommissioned and new “coal-fired” electricity outstrips electricity lost by a factor of five.
Even “nuclear” countries, including Japan, South Africa and Vietnam are increasing their exposure to coal-powered investment with over 50 new plants between them.
I fail see the economic or environmental sense in de-industrialising Scotland and importing products manufactured overseas with higher emissions. – Yours, etc.,
Rev Dr John Cameron
