Whatever else he is, Trump isn’t daft enough to deny the obvious, but does that make him a hero in your eyes, Malcolm?

  • On the subject of cars, I find it very strange that we live in a society that sets increasingly ambitious targets for moving to renewable energy – and for increasing thermal insulation of buildings – but exercises no control over the purchase of ‘gas guzzlers’ other than what appear to be rather ineffective tax penalties.
    The price of fuel is irrelevant – if you’ve got the money there’s no limit on how profligate you are on the road.
  • ‘..I think the days of rich men dictating what can and cannot be done in Scotland are now past’ – so did I, and was surprised at the way in which an obvious ‘fat cat’ was given a platform in the Holyrood parliament to promote his personal cause. How many of the rest of us would be granted that privilege?
  • On the subject of intermittent tidal power, I’m surprised that the Sound of Islay scheme seems to be going ahead but as yet there’s no talk (as far as I know) of complementary tidal schemes to even out the electricity produced, nearer than Kyle Rhea . The Corran Narrows, Connel and Otter Ferry all spring to mind as having potential.
  • Scotland needs to get cracking with developing efficient, viable, energy storage systems – and reviewing the profit margins on government subsidised windfarms, to discourage ‘the get rich quick brigade’.
  • It’s definitely a brainwashing conspiracy Malcolm – when are you going to march on Edinburgh?
