Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The thing about the Severn barrier is that it wrecks an awful lot of ecology including some valuable resources. I believe there are ecologicaly friendly versions but, let's be honest, this is the British govt we're talking about here.

But wouldn't it be a lot cheaper to have a distributed network of small schemes in areas where there's a good hydro-electric resouce ? Lots of streams with good water power in Wales , Scotland and N England. But then we end up with lots of wind resource and then we remember what country this is.

So we're back to nuclear power and the weakness the govt won't admit : It shouldn't be trusted with a lead battery, let alone a nuclear power station.

Rinse and repeat

keep to the Fen Causeway
