Keeping the lights on; & COMMENT DEBATE YOUR LETTERS TO THE NATIONAL NEWSPAPER OF WALES.

* SIR - Like Jan Morgan Morgan, American family of financiers and philanthropists.

Junius Spencer Morgan, 1813–90, b. West Springfield, Mass., prospered at investment banking.
 Dub, (Letters, May 1) I don't particularly like large, multi-national companies, particularly those who make vast profits out of us from the ever increasing price of oil and gas, which incidentally is the main reason for increasing domestic energy prices.

However, what choice in a world largely controlled by them if we want to keep the lights on? She says: "There are many truly alternative technologies and different approaches to energy generation." Can she please tell us what they are and how much they could contribute to our current energy needs? All methods of generating energy have their problems and opponents, except perhaps solar, but even this requires rare metals and is currently much more expensive than wind and other energy sources, although hopefully this will change through improvements in technology.

Strangely she does not even mention the things that are more within our control; energy efficiency and generally adopting less energy intensive lifestyles. JOHN CHILDS John Childs may be:
  • John Childs (cricketer), an English cricket player.
  • John Childs (aviator), an 18th century aviator
  • John Childs (murderer), a murderer.
