It's not abhorrent to me at all. I doubt anyone working in energy would say it's anything less than absolutely necessary.(Original post by Bax-man)
You're effectively saying that because there has not been in your view enough investment in these fuels that you should instead use state coercion to get your way. Firstly, this seems abhorrent.More rubbish. As I said to Simon, this is not the view shared amongst most who are actually working in the energy industry.We're saying that the reason there has been less investment in these fuels, and in renewable energy is because of state intervention. It is because of massive planning restrictions, regulations and huge taxes that firms find it difficult to invest in, for instance, nuclear power. You fail to realise that the market will ensure a natural transition away from fossil fuels - as they become increasingly scarce their price will rise, and alternative sources of energy will become more viable and firms will thus invest in them. If I run an energy firm, I will avoid any time when I will be unable to provide energy to my customers.
