Aberdeen gambling on oil and gas – March 2019

This article appears in the ecologist. It includes my Colleague on Aberdeenshire Council, Martin Ford.

Its thoughtful and even if you not ‘Green’ or an ecologist, there is considerable truth in the argument. I have advocated investment in non fossil industry here in the North East. We are our own worst enemies as the investment has been focused on oil. We would be better in investment terms in land or water based prime industries or alternative energy and sustainable knowledge based industry.

There was a bright future. Its getting dimmer as time goes by and the Sir Ian Woods of this world drive direction in a false economy.
