This is bad news for household budgets because ever-increasing international demand means the price of gas is likely to keep rising.
We\’ve just, as a species, perfected a new method of drilling for gas. One that has dropped the US price to under $3 a unit, some half of what current UK prices are. Which has entirely reversed their LNG plans: they\’re going to use the already planned terminals to export the stuff, not import it.
Using this very same technology we\’ve found enough gas under Blackpool to have the drillers wetting themselves with excitement at how rich they\’re going to be: and some claiming that there\’s a 100 year supply just under the fucking donkey races.
It\’s at precisely this point that you want us all to base energy infrastructure decisions on rising bloody gas prices?
Please people, over there on the naughty step. You\’re just to dim to be taking part in the adults\’ conversation. Or, I\’ll give you this, you\’re too biased or ignorant, one of the three.
