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.

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.
25-10-2008 02:23After hearing Alan Greenspan's "testimony" before the Congressional hearing (made up of millionaires and multi-millionaires), I'm reminded of the police chief in Casablanca... "I am shocked, shocked to find gambling going on here..."

As stated at the front page of their website, Scholars for 9-11 Truth and Justice "take[s] care to present the strongest, most credible research available..."
