Will the UK Face a Natural Gas Crisis this Winter?

30-10-2008 14:10

UK Natural Gas Supply and Demand Projection to 2015
In recent years, natural gas consumption in the United Kingdom has grown rapidly. At the same time, there has been an abrupt change in UK natural gas supplies, brought about by depletion and decline. In the first part of this two part series, I look at historical developments in EU and UK natural gas consumption, production and imports and the challenges posed by declining production.

In the second part of the series, I use a simulation approach to test the likely adequacy of natural gas supplies during the upcoming heating season. In these simulations, I use data from the UK Department of Business, Enterprise, and Regulatory Reform (BERR), UK National Grid, as well as information about recent UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) and Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) develpments. Based on what I refer to as the reference scenario, it seems likely that the UK will increasingly have to rely on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) imports to secure adequate supplies.

Sabotage Is Not An Option, It Is A Necessity

27-10-2008 17:55

We have been led to believe that the act of sabotage, all acts of sabotage, are inherently bad. This is because sabotage is a potential threat to everything civilization holds dear: it is perhaps the only thing that could stop the environmental crisis.

Immigration crunch? The Times' and BBC's anti-immigration agendas

25-10-2008 17:01

There is nothing new about scapegoating migrants and blaming them for the various problems of our society and the system of which they, too, are victims. But the latest comments by the new Immigration Minister and the depressing media coverage they received were too much to swallow.

Will U.S. Tax Rebate/Economic Stimulus be a Windfall for Gambling Casinos?

24-10-2008 16:47

Would it be more prudent next time “U.S. Government Tax Stimulus Rebates” be “government vouchers” that can only be used to pay for food, housing, utilities, medical bills, e.g., important primary needs?

Beware election fraud in US presidential elections - 2004 discrepancies analysed

24-10-2008 11:20

The Guardian's US correspondent recently reported that the incidence of voter fraud in US elections is "minimal". While this may be true if "voter fraud" means strictly fraud committed by individual voters in the polling booth, skilled researchers have published a series of analyses of discrepancies that strongly suggest a significant degree of fraud in the 2004 presidential elections. This article summarises a few of these analyses and points to sources of up-to-date articles re fears of fraud in the forthcoming US presidential elections of November 2008.

Berkeley, CA, October 22, 2008 -- On October 18, 2008, an OpEdNews article titled, "8 House Members View Draft Bill on Independent Science/Tech Probe of WTC 1, 2, 7 Collapses," was published by four members of the group Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice ( The authors of the article and draft bill are not spokespersons for Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice, and therefore are individually responsible for it.
