'Genie' is out of the bottle; Yousay IN YOUR OPINION...

PLEASE forgive me if I don't share the same opinion of the Energy Bill as MP Jenny Willott (You Say, June 8).

For far too long now, we have had reports in the media that say, for instance, that windmills to generate electricity are going to be sited at any given place, the "carrot" for the public to swallow being thousands of jobs, and electricity for thousands of homes.

Hands up everyone who also thought this would make electricity cheaper? Then the bombshell hit the decks, to find that only 25% of the time do these things actually work.

I am not surprised the Tories are not keen on subsidies for renewable energy sources as the "genie" is out of the bottle and they have seen the light.

They have also noticed how much dearer electricity is now, and have also probably had thousands of letters from the relatives of the many hundreds of elderly folk who have succumbed to the cold in the coldest winter of the past 50 years? They have also probably noticed that official figures find that the socalled manmade "global warming" hasn't happened since 1997.

The fashion now of course is to drop the scare of global warming, and to call it "climate change" instead.

So is this global warming, sorry, "climate change", going to happen, or is it not going to happen? What do you think? | Graham Williams Canton, Cardiff
