Fuel Poverty Conference
I was asked to write something on the upcoming Fuel Poverty Conference in Dublin.
I dont have much to say about it apart from the fact that one look at the speakers tells me everything I need to know about it.
Many of these speakers support the transition towards very expensive electricity here in Ireland. They have little understanding of the economics of electricity generation, nor the technical complexities involved, nor the environmental impacts of their plans.
Their ideas are based on religious zeal and are creating much social and environmental damage to appease the greedy.
If this is what passes for a "Fuel Poverty" Conference in Ireland in 2015, then there is not much hope for the future.
