Comment posted Scottish Power Renewables announces another delay for proposed Tiree Array by Treble T.

Even if biomass is carbon neutral when it is burned no one has taken into account the extra carbon emissions caused by the transportation of the wood to user’s homes.
If the combined totals are included then the burning of wood in wood burning stoves is NOT carbon neutral. However there is absolutely no chance of the Green Brigade admitting that.

Treble T also commented

  • Forth Ports are trying to obtain planning permission to build a bio-mass plant in the Dundee dock area (which they own) but they would have to bring the necessary supplies of wood for burning by ship from Canada.
    Forth Ports are reluctant to state what is the carbon cost of transporting this wood from Canada.
    If Forth Ports want a bio-mass plant in Scotland they should build in their own backyard in Leith.
  • Hopefully the Tiree Array will go the same way as the Kintyre Array.

  • Corbyn impact comes at once in Scotland – forcing First Minister to get on with indy
    In my opinion Jeremy Corbyn has lost the plot.
    He appoints fire raiser Lord Mike Watson who was jailed for 16 months as a result of setting the curtains on fire at Prestonfield House as his Education Minister in the House of Lords and a vegan as his shadow Agricultural Minister at Westminster.
    It looks like the lunatics have taken over the asylum.

    Families on social housing waiting lists are not going to be very happy when they see refugees being given these houses.
    We keep reading in the newspapers about the lack of social housing being built yet when there is a refugee crisis houses appear like magic.
    It would be interesting to know how many social housing houses throughout Scotland are currently lying empty and not in use.

    Hugh Jazz.
    You are a typical Yes supporter. You love to dish it out but are unable/unwilling to accept another person’s point of view if it does not agree with your narrow twisted views.
    My post about Jennifer Dempsie is totally correct and if you cannot accept it then too bad.
  • SNP face two major smellies in public contracts for party cash
    In my opinion the Scottish Conservative Party should change its name to the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party and try to get protestants living in Scotland to vote for them.
