    It was a nice paper, the first question was a bit rubbish- I talked about : coal decreasing, oil decreasing - why? urbanizing on coal reserves, decline of secondary industry, closure of pits (90 closed in 1945/1985) but electricity is increasing. Natural gas plateaus in figure 3 - but britain lacks energy diversification, this is an issue because despite electricity increasing, coal and oil are decreasing so the UK only has natural gas to supply the demand for electricity. Low energy security and net importer therefore. Idk....

    I found that 2 questions were very similiar - regulating the concerns of item 6 and the one prior to that, so I pretty much wrote the same (signage system, HGV light dimmers, seismometers, toxicity/ph/radioactive measurements of waste, replanting hedgerows etc)

    I thought it wasn't the best paper, two of the questions in the middle I thought were pretty similar! Both about attempts to improve fracking?? Anyone else think this?!
    Yeah I did! felt I repeated myself a bit

    Agree my answers for them was so similar to each other, one wrote in past tense and another wrote in future tense... that is probably the only difference.

    For the first question i discusses unreliable renewable energy sources such as solar and wind, saying the also require great economic investment. solar i discusses nuclear energy and said about power plats near end of life cycles etc. natural gas such as those from fracking are unreliable due to approval. l about some more in detail, what do you guys think? i quoted some case studies and figures from the graphs too.
    Yeah i talked about very similar, mainly the kindof disadvantages of certain sources such as nuclear and renweables etc

    Really?? Cuz the first one out of the two was about how cuadrilla are reducing the impacts so, limit truck movements, prevent leeching etc and then the bit on the benefits, and the other was on what could be done to improve the fracking process according to item 6 and Mike Hill's criticisms?? Oh well 😂

    Did anyone else think that exam was ridiculous? I had no idea what to write about in the first question so i was just talking about the changes that have happened before 2030 and said why these changes occurred, which I'm sure is wrong.

    Well the first one was heavily research based. I wrote about how they wanted to used a road that went through one of the ministry of defences bases in Inskip. Talked about the seisometers and there traffic light system. Then for national scale how two-thirds of profits can be taxed, and locally how they may get £100,000 and 1% of profits.

    For the second question I just mentioned some concerns Mike mentioned and possible solutions to each

    They were good in my opinion, talk about what they done to improve e.g restrictions on truck movement around
    peak time, there are plans for a temporary road connects the M55 to the the site. They will be using 'noise reduced' generators to keep the noise down etc. Then talk about energy security for the UK and cheaper energy bills, profits for the local e.g £100,000 + 1% of the total venue for the local. Thats is alot despite the low population in the area therefore it is beneficial. I thought those questions were good.. now watch me get them..

    Geography, in general is basically bs'ing through the questions as long as you can back it up with evidence

    First question - i wrote how we had relied on abundance of nstural resources in past. Then how there has been increase of using natural gas since 1990 but our north sea gas running out. Now net importer so no energy security and vonerable to changes which is an issue. Then said fracking could solve this but issues with fracking and explained them..and so forth. Then said renewables wont come into play till 2030 so fracking could bridge gap. - overall issues over energy security and whether to frack. ... is that right sorta lines? .. also for cuadrilla at rosacre- i talked about how they did reduce risk but then how there were still risks to locals and eviroment. Then spoke about benefits. gov gets 2/3 profit in tax so more money to spend on national services ie nhs. National energy security and local jobs... is that along the right lines?

    I genuinely thought that was a good paper. I answered in weird ways tho lol, started off at the back, then to cuadrilla. then to regulations, the first weird 12 marker and then the 8 marker. But i ended up with 5 minutes to spare lol.
