Hywel mentioned this subject. Members may not know but all the high buildings in London have their own Generators in the basements.
If they took power from the National Grid it would break down.
As I understand it, the Govt. are paying for Wind Farms as an interim measure until Under Water Generators can be perfected which will give this country power from the movement of water under the sea, which is very powerful. As those of us who have swum in it will know!
Power Stations using coal dust or rubbish pollute the atmosphere, destroying the Ozone layer.
Power Stations using Atomic Energy cause disposal problems, nobody wants it.
It all costs money.
Everyone can help by reducing electricity usage.
When I was young we did our homework on the kitchen table. We read comics and library books. Our parents read library books. All with one light on. We all learned to spell. The ability to spell plant names came easily to me.
