Hi Mark I enjoy your articles and respect your opinion on many things. You are possibly over simplifying the energy policy issue, as technology continues to outpace the policy that dictates expenditure and planning in energy. The fork in the road widens as this issue is left unaddressed. Add profitability on existing investments (from the old era of energy), political agendas and often over zealous desire (or just greed) for super profits, and we have the current energy debacle - change is never without pain or unpopularity - and energy is certainly undergoing big change! Keep up the good work!
