Comment posted Morphing Scotland: Saudi Arabia to Silicone Valley by Jnr Tick.
Green, renewables, harnessing the elements and what nature provides with the aim to have less or eventually no reliance on polluting dirty fossil fuels, hope I am still around in the decades to come to see this come to fuition Globally. Regarding Japan, they are backing off their commitments on climate change such is the sudden rise in consumption of fossil fuels since their nuclear lower station problems. They may have turned a couple of nuclear power stations back on rather than risk blackout but this country are far from happy about continuation of the reliance on this power. A vote put to the Italians last year threw up a 90% vote against going down the nuclear power station route, a result many other European countries I am sure would echo. Last I read on Germany they plan to phase out their nuclear power stations within the next 8-10 years.

- “Nothing like putting all your eggs in one basket”
The not so infinite and polluting fossil fuels accompanied by Nuclear power are old eggs in one basket, very short sighted indeed. Shame on Scotland for striving towards non reliance on these polluting fuels, for striving towards lowering our carbon footprint and aiming to sustain our lifestyles with 100% green energy. Whether we manage this within the timescale we are looking to achieve to me is not as important as leading the way and by example, influencing others, showing there is another way. The fact that we have this ‘out of sight out of mind’ way of dealing with spent uranium, burying it in tonnes of concrete until we know what to do with it, is just not good enough. Countries like Japan and Germany are now turning their backs on nuclear energy with the latest contamination in Japan making these and other countries think again. Providing energy from green sources is definately the way ahead but will take time to develop as many are still in their infancy yet to be harnessed to their full potential.

A country the size of Canada sees fit not to have a nuclear deterrent. Should the people of Ireland and Iceland be afraid?
Maybe worth asking ourselves why we feel the need for this capability in UK and are these reasons ones that reinforce the case for Scotland remaining within this union.

Are these debates suddenly of value since you have finally found one where you believe it wasn’t overly obvious SNP hadn’t come out on top Newsie? You have poo pooed these debates for long enough haven’t you?
“Scottish Leaders’ debate – a clear win for Davidson”
Is this title a personal opinion or any data to reinforce the claim?
Labour’s Daily Record open survey doesn’t agree with you Newsie, mind you they appear to have asked more folks than their editor. They have the result as follows -
Nicola Sturgeon 71%
Jim Murphy 19%
Your Ruthie 10%
Willie Rennie Nil pois
The Press & Journal’s online poll has even more depressing viewing for you Newsie -
Nicola Sturgeon – 77.69%
Ruthie – 11.02%
Jim Murphy 9.68%
The other bloke – 1.61%
I’m with Graeme re Ruth Davidson, she is indeed a good debater, sincere, often cutting and too the point but a Tory all the same. I don’t agree with the Daily Record’s findings, Nicola although delivering another good assured confident performance didn’t stand out by that %age over Ruth Davidson imo.
