It’s electrifying!

davidayersBuilding a million more homes in crowded little England by 2020 seems about the daftest thing anyone could think of. Where on earth will their electricity come from? In recent years, almost as soon as winter had begun, the National Grid was calling for more energy. That’s because we have a shortage of energy generation and an increasing risk of blackouts. The Grid has taken emergency powers to keep our lights on in winter. It will pay good money to major consumers to get them to switch off. This is a last resort.

The Luxury of Dissatisfaction

How can this be?
