It seems that Britain has just gone a fortnight without using fossil fuels  coal to generate energy for the first time, probably since the industrial revolution.  It can be done, just need a new mindset.  The young folk seem to have a better grasp on the importance of this than the fossils who seem hell bent on a selfish scorched earth policy.  Long May it continue and let’s hope it’s just the start.

It seems that some people think that the UK has gone 2 weeks without using fossil fuels for electricity generation perhaps forgetting that gas is a fossil fuel. Wind and solar are still only bit players in the total generation mix.

What they mean is that coal-powered power stations are being closed down, not the same thing. And we still have STOR, which are large collections of diesel powered generators used when things get desperate!

28 %  of electricity generated by renewable sources and rising is not a bit player,  it's a great start.

All the coal fired power plants are to be phased out by 2025  so out with fossil fuelled power generation and out with old fossil attitudes
