Lots of moving parts to this. I don't claim to understand all of it, but some of the issues are:Does anybody know the actual reason gas wholesale prices are rising so fast?
I dare say many people here can remember seeing gasholders or gasometers in most towns that stored gas which have now mostly gone, what a great way to store reserves of gas when there is a spike in demand or cost goes high and yet someone saw fit to get rid of them, probably due to cost of maintanance but I bet they wish we now had them.Combine that with the UK possibly having the lowest storage in Europe
Yes that program mentioned how Egypt produces LNG and that it is more efficient and cost effective to pipe just natural gas at pressure through a pipeline than moving LNG around in tankers.I think there was also the bit about most of the UK's imported gas is LNG transported in tankers from the US & ME
Don't forget Israel, that Netty yahoo is probably a bigger war monger and threat to world peace than Putin, about time someone knocked them down a peg or two.Russia is evil and it is all their fault for everything:
So long as America keeps its nose out then it should only be a short one, if they stick there nose in then things will become a lot worse because American oil supplies will be disrupted if Russia and China take offence.A war in the Ukraine could change this overnight,
US still think they are the dominant world power. Depending upon how power is defined, China has either already overtaken the US, or will do so in a few years.
Yes! When i was a kid we lived near one in brighton, it fascinated me because sometimes it was up, sometimes it was down. Eventually I asked my dad, who explained it and back then he worked for British gasI dare say many people here can remember seeing gasholders or gasometers
Do you subscribe to the theory that this is being done on purpose to reduce consumption and make green energy more competitive?The solution is a very clear sighted strategy to substantially achieve energy independence, implemented with resolve at speed.
Increased energy prices will encourage behaviours which reduce consumption and the size of the problem
The only british supplier left, once upon a time it was the gas equivalent of the national grid and was where we all got our gas from, then Thatcher made way for it to become private and that was that. All ultilties that supply gas, electric and water should be nationised and their running overseen by UK tax payers.back then he worked for British gas
We are required to replace our transport (or not travel), replace our heating system (or be cold), work from home (or not work at all). This will produce a colossal transfer of wealth from just about everyone to a small coterie of already excessively wealthy people, which is the purpose of government when you get down to it.
The fashion industry is a great example of how marketing can target the gullable and is an enviromental disaster, who would ever have thought that one day people would buy worn out jeans, I used to get moaned at for wearing jeans with threadbare knees now they wear just the threads often with rolls of fat hanging out.buy less new clothes, repair
