A NEUTRAL chairman will referee a meeting to debate Barrow’s proposed biomass plant, after under-fire MP John Woodcock agreed to step aside.
Have your say
I love number 2, Mark!As for sea/tide, I'm sure this would be more reliable than wind and less visually disturbing for some too. But it is very expensive to install and specific locations have particular concerns - aesthetic and environmental with effects on wildlife potentially dire. It seems no form of producing energy is completely sound and uncontroversial.
That's great to hear Ron nothing like standing up for what you feel is right just like FOB. Hence we live in a free state. And yes I agree always best to look at other forms of Energy: two really good ones came up at the meeting the other Friday night
(1) Use the sea or tide
(2) The one I liked rather than pay Centrica Â£42 million a year in subsidiaries. Use the money each year to put Solar panels on our roofs and reduce our energy bills. This also creates more jobs than the biomass plant in making and installing them plus its cleaner, greener and more energy efficient too. Just a thought!
Depends what you mean by "fought", Mark. I have argued long and hard over many issues and used to demonstrate in person on some [usually environmental topics]. Nowadays, I try to be more positive and, in this case, am looking at the best ways for producing energy rather than those I do not like.
