Scotland: Wind will power the Scots green ambitions - environment - 28 May 2014 - New Scientist

Scotland is argueably the best choice for as a renewable energy model. It has already committed it's self to stop new nuclear power  development. Although a longstanding net exporter of electricity notebly to it's southern neighbour England, this is not necessarily an ideal economic advantage but is rather an indication of insuffient industrial presence. Any new (renewable) energy policy
 will ideally take into account the parallel industrial development with associated employment.

Cheers up North and remember the unofficial national anthem, "Flower of Scotland" which intellegently remembers past conflicts with close neighbour England in particular and firmly puts these in the past. Remember too that both UK & USA have similar concept
s of "A Commonwealth". Could this be more wide spread through the global issue of climate change, rising sea-levels, unharnessed population increases, consumeism and resulting human induced pollution land sea and air!!!

Awe ra best !
