A story in the Ferret and Sunday National covers plans to build a new gas fired power station at Peterhead. In a country which is supposed to be leading on climate change.
This is the full quotes I gave to the Ferret:
“Even if carbon capture does become available, it is not zero carbon, so this power station could still be pumping out hundreds of thousands of tonnes of climate emissions by the time we are supposed to have reached net zero. The current power station is Scotland’s largest single source of climate emissions. With real zero carbon renewables available today we would be crazy to build a plant that could easily hold that same unenviable title in the 2040s.”
