We are an island surrounded by water that ebbs and flows 24/7, plus the odd tidal estuary. We have wind - not including the PHARP! type - that's in constant 24/7 flux. When weather permits, we have the odd hour or two of the sun out at play with his hat on?

Q 1/- The big long-term, vision: WHY are we not investing 100+M's, in self-support for energy which would benefit everyone and the country as a whole?

Q 2/- The big long-term vision: WHY? HS-1 / 2 / 3? Investing as above... to shorten travel from A - B by 20' - 30'... to the benefit of?

As Tom Jones once voiced, WHY?, WHY?, WHY?
