No­body loves them!

Halifax Courier - - The Gift Of Life -

No­body loves the big en­ergy com­pa­nies these days. But break­ing them up would not on its own be enough to tackle soar­ing fuel bills. As long as big banks and pri­va­tised en­ergy firms throw money at coal, oil and gas, bills are likely to con­tinue to rise as these fu­els be­come more ex­pen­sive, es­pe­cially com­pared to re­new­ables which are get­ting cheaper as tech­nol­ogy ad­vances. And as more of these harm­ful fos­sil fu­els are mined, drilled and burnt, more people’s land will be pol­luted, and the global cli­mate will suf­fer. In­stead, we as a so­ci­ety must take back con­trol of en­ergy, in­vest in switch­ing to re­new­ables, and fo­cus on pro­vid­ing af­ford­able, sus­tain­able en­ergy for ev­ery­one.
