Im trying . On No.3 heading to Water St. Driver stopped for 6 mins on King's Bridge Rd (blocking traffic at that) and then the driver took another 7 min break on Duckworth. 13 mins waiting on a bus for no reason. Unacceptable.

Natural gas is unacceptable.

Given Holyrood's last legs, question for if incremental additions adequate? No baseline generation limit variable additions, especially on isolated island's small pool. Every scenario I've played out requires connections to mainland grid. Better now than later.

Reminder for that only other option for MF was a new FF combustion generation plant. We have some high bills for a century of carbon free production, and a distribution system that was a century late.

Bloody hell - a study of Finnish drivers shows that people touch their smartphone on average (ON AVERAGE) 41 times per hour while driving, and even more in city traffic. What gobsmackingly insane neglect of one's own and others' safety😱

No doubt with further uptick in capacity and standardization of design, recycling of lithium batteries will become stanars practice, but there will be a considerable energy demand, which at large scale imposes a ceiling of diminshed returns. Key advantage of H2 storage IMO.

I cannot help but see an advantage of having business connections ongoing with some of the world's energy experts - companies all seeking new opportunities to diversify their profit model away from FF as ongoing extraction continues. Engagement not animosity.

Specifically re the energy companies offshore, they are available partners in this conversion. All have alternative energy divisions, both in wind and on H2, and offered a whip (high direct C2 tax) or carrot (offset investment by wind of H2) could play a key role.

Exclusively from BEV to FCEV for residential use as product offers expand. Continue development of Green H2 production and establish export mrkts (Europe). Shutter offshore industry. Enjoy world's first 100% decarbonized economy. Water + Wind + H2 @ 50-70 yrs.

Excess wind will be channeled to Hydrogen generation. Avoid mess with batteries, simultaneously begin switch out of all prov ferry action to fuel cell. Set up switch yards at all transport truck ports and enforce an H2 fuel cell for heavy truck use. In time move incentives (2/n)

Next step post MF is to begin tapping wind resource. I don't believe any further purchase of any combustion based generation (for back up) is necessary. Target for 4x backup ~1200-1500 MW). Hit oil companies for investment - punitive tax vs lower investment...(1/n)

This article raises key points, but inherent flaws. Dependent on a very limited definition of rational actor (ignores all game theory) as well as largely ignorant of boundary issues - extra-national entities in a multi polar world.

Iceland is a unique case of geothermal. We unfortunately (and fortunately) do not live on a volcanic island.

If NL shuttered our offshore tomorrow, what would result? Oil $ goes up which encourages further development in other places. Our demand and supply are not symmetrical.

Sorry about the lazy term, not in anyway personal, but a poor choice... IMO supply side criticism is "easy", and more often misdirected with technical inaccuracies. I cannot get behind criticism of production while I am (and we as society) still dependant on that product.

Somewhat better to refocus on that specific point. But I stick to my argument. Going after the offshore is a better soundbite that real proposal for change.

IMO until we, NL have shown the world how to live without C, a true decarbonized economy - which means a Hydrogen economy - to rail against our offshore production is hypocritical. Production will shutter only after we learn to live without it. All cart before horse otherwise.
