“In 2015 the government started hacking and slashing at all manner of green policies. This has stopped, and that’s very welcome,” he said.

Richard Black, the director of the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit thinktank, echoed that view. He said the strategy showed a “sea change” in “top-line thinking about the low carbon economy”, with Theresa May’s government seeing it as an opportunity rather than a cost as it was viewed under David Cameron.

Electricity consumers 'to fund nuclear weapons through Hinkley Point C' | UK news | The Guardian
Last June, MPs passed a motion in favour of replacing four submarines carrying Trident missiles at a cost of £40bn.

“What our research suggests is that British low-carbon energy strategies are more expensive than they need to be, in order to maintain UK military nuclear infrastructures,” said Stirling.

Carbon emissions from warming soils could trigger disastrous feedback loop | Environment | The Guardian
Potential feedback loops, or tipping points, have long been suspected to exist by scientists, and there is some evidence for them in the geological record. What appears to happen is that once warming reaches a certain point, these natural biological factors kick in and can lead to a runaway, and potentially unstoppable, increase in warming. >> Alaska, Siberian Tundra, North South Poles, Brazil Amazon Forest showed in new research, on balance, the Amazonas is a carbon emitter.

UN asks UK to suspend work on Hinkley Point | UK news | The Guardian
The UNECE has now gone a step further and said the UK should consider refraining from further works on the site of the new reactors.

The body said the government should wait until it has heard back from countries including Germany, Norway and the Netherlands on whether it would be helpful for them to be formally notified under a treaty on transboundary environmental impacts.

The UN request is an embarrassment for the government, which has faced several delays over the UK’s first atomic power station for a generation. But it is unlikely to derail the earthworks and building of a jetty at Hinkley, which is Europe’s biggest construction site.

Energy subsidies should focus on storage and cutting demand, MPs say - BBC News
The committee said the government should redesign the capacity market to encourage energy storage, which ranges from lithium batteries to pumping water uphill and releasing it through turbines when power is needed.
This technology could save billions of pounds for consumers, it said.
Ministers should also consider a subsidy system to speed up the deployment of storage, given its importance for storing and using power from renewable energy to make the most of the clean technology.

Hinkley Point: new UK chancellor determined to start building | UK news | The Guardian
Hammond admitted he was not aware of the latest findings from the financial watchdog, the National Audit Office, that consumers may have to pay out nearly £30bn over the 35-year life of the plant – through higher energy bills – if the cost of wholesale energy remained low. He said he would look at this immediately.

A subsidy deal signed between the French energy company EDF and the administration of David Cameron, meant that EDF could receive compensation – effectively paid by consumers’ higher bills – in the event of a fall in wholesale electricity prices.

Climate change deal: 'Zero carbon' laws promised by government - BBC News
Under current law, emissions must be cut by 80% by 2050 - but ministers have said this does not go far enough. Following the climate deal in Paris, it is clear the UK must not increase CO2 at all because the warming threat is so severe, they added. No details of the law change have been given - and critics said the UK was failing to meet even current targets. [...] However, many in the energy sector will be baffled by what they see as a schizophrenic attitude to climate change from the government. While pledging their allegiance to very demanding CO2 cuts, ministers have made a slew of policy changes that are predicted to increase emissions. [...] government has failed to secure any new nuclear stations, scrapped a competition for carbon capture and threatened cuts in the offshore wind budget unless costs radically fall.

EDF finance chief quits ahead of Hinkley Point decision - BBC News
[ 18bn, world most expensive, and internal board power & power politics, get him off, and you are able to go ahead // guaranteed strike price ] Thomas Piquemal stepped down because he feared the project could jeopardise EDF's financial position, according to reports. EDF shares opened 8.2% lower on Monday. Last month, Chris Bakken, the director of the project that could produce 7% of UK electricity by 2025, said he was leaving to pursue other opportunities. Jean-Bernard Levy, chairman and chief executive of EDF, said Mr Piquemal told him of the decision to leave last week and that he regretted the "haste" of Mr Piquemal's departure. The company's board is expected to finalise in April how it will fund the project after postponing the decision a number of times. Mr Levy said the board was studying the investment in Hinkley Point to ascertain the best way to finance the power plant. He added that EDF aimed to announce a final investment decision "soon".

Twenty Faslane workers exposed to radiation - BBC News
Twenty workers at the Faslane nuclear submarine base were exposed to radiation due to safety errors, newly-released documents have revealed. The engineers were repairing a leaking tank on a Trident submarine while a nearby nuclear reactor was operated. Details of the incident, in August 2012, at the Clyde site emerged after Freedom of Information (FOI) requests by an anti-nuclear group. The Ministry of Defence said no-one was harmed and safety had been improved. [...] The MoD report has been heavily redacted and does not reveal the level of radiation each worker was exposed to.

Britain heading for power cuts next winter, say 60 local authorities | Business | The Guardian
bit.ly/1TOwjhT &! A group representing 60 local authorities has warned that recent closures of large power stations have left Britain heading for power cuts next winter, despite assurances to the contrary from the government. [...] National Grid needed to act immediately to fill the supply gap by sending out new contracts for at least 2,500 megawatts (MW) of additional generating capacity – enough to power 2.5m homes. The alliance wants ministers to reconsider the level of carbon taxes, saying this is one of the key reasons why so many coal-fired power stations are being shut down early. [...] In recent years, coal, nuclear and gas-fired plants have been shut because of low prices, high operating costs or old age. Windfarms have been erected and new nuclear facilities promised but energy companies say gas plants cannot be built without higher subsidies. //&! bit.ly/1MpvhlE - UK doesn not meet 15% of EU renewables target, but cuts subsidies for renewables, duh! &! bit.ly/1sL8Kty

The chancellor did not completely rule out raising taxes in the event of a further slowdown in growth, but said that now was not the time for "significant" tax hikes. [...] I'm absolutely clear we've got to root our country in the principle that we live within our means and that we have economic security." [...] "whole purpose of our economic plan was to have a budget surplus. [...] we got big challenges at home to make the economy more productive even as more people get work.

Hitachi boss issues warning over Wylfa subsidy deal - BBC News
[ giving extortionate (for consumer) strike prices, while cutting renewable feed in tariff 95% and 500m subsidies for Oil/Aberdeen ] The head of the company behind a new £8bn nuclear power station on Anglesey has warned it may walk away from the project if a subsidy deal with the UK government cannot be reached. Hitachi chairman Hiroaki Nakanishi told the Telegraph he voiced concerns about Wylfa Newydd's expected cost to Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond. It followed problems a rival faced for the Hinkley Point plant in Somerset. The UK government said it wants low-cost nuclear power. Hitachi owns Horizon Nuclear Power which is behind the plans to build the new power plant, which could be operational by the early 2020s. Horizon is in talks with the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) on issues such as the strike price, which will be key to attracting additional finance.

Nuclear Power: Burke on Hinkley Point, EDF and China - BBC News
Adds 1bn£ for consumers to energy bills, an expensive dogmatic folly by mercenaries. //&! UK energy wholesale energy price twice that of Germany - bbc.in/1PAKyWl //&! The coming era of unlimited — and free — clean energy wapo.st/1MEYF71 via https://redd.it/3pmorw // A highlight of Chancellor George Osborne's visit to China was the announcement of £2bn of Chinese investment for a nuclear power station at Hinkley Point. But critics point to progress at other EDF projects, and doubt the Somerset scheme can be built on time and on budget. In a personal film, the chairman of environmental think tank E3G Tom Burke claims it would be "a very bad deal for Britain" - for both the environment and taxpayers - describing it as an "expensive folly". //&! bit.ly/1OIhJHv "sheer folly" &! about people living there - bit.ly/1Rph8Ic &! why would edf sell some of its stake?

Hinkley Point nuclear agreement reached - BBC News
More than £30bn worth of deals between the UK and China are expected to be struck during the four-day visit. [...] 'Security concerns' The Hinkley Point project has come under fire over its cost and the delays to investment decisions and the timetable for building. The government has also been criticised for guaranteeing a price of £92.50 per megawatt hour of electricity - more than twice the current cost - for the electricity Hinkley produces. [<< death knell 4 UK consumer & heavy industry! In 10 years as other countries invested in renewables heavily, energy prices will be much higher in UK, a country which did not invest heavily in the Smart Grid & renewables when it was cheap to borrow to fund private public partnerships; 5-10 year mega projects. Bc nasty party is mercenary, not visionary. &! china is deep in renewables. why not renewables!? build smart grid] The Treasury hopes that within 10 years China will be UK second biggest trading partner. //&!

With Hinkley Point, squandermania has reached dangerous new heights | Simon Jenkins | Comment is free | The Guardian
[ cutting renewables, sure. how about 24bn for renewables and SmartGrid 10 years. Duh. And no energy price tariff guarantees needed. ] The only two versions of the EDF pressurised water reactor under construction, in Finland and France, are way behind schedule with doubled budgets. For £24bn you can read anything you like. It is the auto-da-fé of Treasury control. The person who should be laughing is Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn. Hinkley Point competes with HS2 and possibly a new Heathrow runway for the title of “world’s stupidest megaproject”. [...] When Centrica, the last British investor, pulled out of Hinkley in 2013, it did so because not a single adviser thought it a sensible bet. [ and who benefits? companies who benefit from status quo! fossil fuel companies ] //&!

Our environmental deficit is now beyond nature’s ability to regenerate | Environment | The Guardian
We are heading fast in the wrong direction despite the world gearing up to approve new sustainable development goals and a new climate accord [...] The world enters ecological ‘overshoot’ this year on 13 August, six days earlier than last year. All the world’s production and consumption for the rest of the year, this suggests, then runs up an environmental deficit beyond nature’s ability to regenerate itself and safely absorb our economic waste. It’s a highly conservative estimate, based on the best data available. // no amount of profits/money can't buy us a 2nd earth in 30 years. // Stop burning fossil fuels now: there is no CO2 'technofix', scientists warn - bit.ly/1UiJmqB - Researchers have demonstrated that even if a geoengineering solution to CO2 emissions could be found, it wouldn’t be enough to save the oceans

The Shazam Effect - The Atlantic
"“Because the most-popular songs now stay on the charts for months, the relative value of a hit has exploded. The top 1 percent of bands and solo artists now earn 77 percent of all revenue from recorded music, media researchers report. And even though the amount of digital music sold has surged, the 10 best-selling tracks command 82 percent more of the market than they did a decade ago. The advent of do-it-yourself artists in the digital age may have grown music’s long tail, but its fat head keeps getting fatter.”" &! http://www.theatlantic.com/video/index/382837/who-made-pop-music-so-repetitive-you-did/ &! http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/11/24/revenue-streams?currentPage=all &! http://www.katinkahesselink.net/his/influence-theosophy.html &! http://ma.tt/2014/11/science-of-hits/

EA’s Stock Is Riding High(ish) Again, but Did Titanfall Do Enough? | Re/code
That digital overtake last year was driven by growth both in mobile games like The Simpsons: Tapped Out and console games with microtransactions baked in, like the then-current soccer title FIFA 13. However, Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment pointedly declined to include microtransactions in its game, but will have some paid downloadable content starting this month.

BBC Two - Mind the Gap: London v the Rest
Polarising UK. (1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London_Gateway (Port is a 50 year bet that London and surroundings will thrive further. Keeping Supply chains as tight as possible.) Most great careers are in the City. 58% of jobs need/have graduate qualification. City/London networking economics. Economies of Agglomeration. Proximity fuels productivity. + Connection to the world of business. Once you've attracted good neighbours, it attracts more people and more businesses to be there too. Self-fulfilling, once you reach critical mass, Tipping Point. Cotton Mills in the 19th century were build where the cotton planted. Corporations want to locate parts of their business were the resources are - the talent pool. And for data centres, where cheap energy is. // UK is now a two speed economy. London followed by the other big cities, followed by the rest of UK, rural UK. // There is no formula of success that other cities less prosperous could copy from London. It evolves.
