Power and time are of the essence

The Oban Times - - 10 Letters - R M David­son, Ard­fern.

Sir, I am glad Mrs Met­calfe has the grace to re­alise some of her scary sce­nar­ios are not proven.

She may ques­tion the ve­rac­ity of some re­ports but oth­ers may wish for proof of her as­ser­tions.

Some tac­tics are un­ac­cept­able when a coun­try’s power sup­ply is at stake. Per­son­ally I would pre­fer to look out on el­e­gant wind tur­bines turn­ing lazily in the wind rather than hav­ing power cuts with fac­to­ries on short time and fam­i­lies strug­gling.

I note Mrs Met­calfe is not a NIMBY (Not in My Back Yard). What is her so­lu­tion, bear­ing in mind the de­vel­op­ment time re­quired to make any new tech­nol­ogy vi­able? Power and time are of the essence.
