Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Wind, solar and tidal generation produce only intermittent power; demand is continuous. Until a viable electrical energy storage solution is found we require nuclear and/or fossil fuel generation as well. There is plenty of work going on to find that solution but until then renewables are not the complete answer. Remember the cold hard winter of (iirc) 2009/10? There was hardly any wind during that cold spell.
