Decc – MY2050 -Can you balance energy supplies by 2050 ?

The Department of Energy and Climate Change have launched an online tool named as My2050,  which allows the user to control an interesting set of issues to address in order to ensure efficient  energy generation by the year 2050.

    Thanks for posting this, it looks very interesting (and I will have to play with it).

    Presumably, given your level of activism/involvement, you will have read David MacKay’s Sustainable Energy: without the hot air (on which the tool is probably based)?

    If you can forgive me for being conservative (rather than liberal) and fully-pursuaded that you cannot spend your way out of a debt crisis, I hope we can stay in touch?

    Either way, best wishes for all your political and environmental efforts,

    Thank you Martin for your comment, i have read a fair amount of mackay’s work and it is highly interesting and i agree with you assumption that it is most likely from his work that the tool came from.

    And lol no worries, i hope you will find what i write interesting, even though it may not be of your own political beliefs.

    Thank you again and please do keep in touch with any questions or other comments you may have.

      Thanks Stephen – all other things being unequal – I am sure you will like my critique of Appeal to Reason: A cool look at Global Warming, as written by the father of Nigella Lawson (I cannot bring myself to even mention his despicable name)… Now also on Amazon.co.uk! 🙂

      FYI – I was a Labour Party member from 1996 to 2004 but, like many others, was disgusted by TB’s behaviour over Iraq, etc..

      Hi Stephen,

      Since you are not a subsrciber, I thought I should let you know that tomorrow and Friday I will be publishing my reviews of two chapters of Dobson and Eckersley’s Political Theory and the Ecological Challenge (2006); one on Conservatism (by Roger Scruton) and one on Liberalism (by Marcel Wissenburg) respectively. My tutor at Keele (a certain Andrew Dobson) was very complimentary about these reviews when I submitted them to him as coursework earlier this year… I just wanted you to know I have the capacity to be critical of my own kind. 🙂

      With best wishes,

    Thanks for subscribing, Stephen.

    In honour of this (lol), I have hurredly-written a review of Mary Mellor’s third chapter in the book (on socialism) – I think she does a really good job of highlighting why all socialists should be environmentalists (please tell that to Graham Stringer MP) but, I must confess, I spend most of my time (in my post to be published on Monday) attacking James Delingpole for suggesting that all environemntalists are Communists in disguise…. If you can’t wait till Monday, just look at my review of his new book, Watermelons, on Amazon.co.uk

    Have a good weekend,
