Labour’s ‘Fairer Greener Future’ involves #ULEZ extending into all of Greater London, Pricing the poor & self employed out of Cars/Vans! It involves even bigger Taxes on #Energy firms who’re already quitting #NorthSea projects because of Super Windfall taxes already in place! 1/
JP Morgan Chief like me thinks we’ll need Oil/Gas for another 50yrs or face a depression. Labour plans to scare that all away from UK so we’ll have to pay fortunes for imports. Meaning poorer #Energy Security. In future Winters’ no #Electricity meaning blackouts. Wind + Solar 2/
Will be nowhere near enough to cope with increasing demand. If we have Colder winters we’ll be screwed. They also agree with Govt on #HeaterPumps & Insulation which bag of fag packet costs £200Bn + £72Bn minimum. OffshoreWind remains at £140MWR which is higher than normal #Gas 3/

"This land grab is illegal & illegitimate" he says "These lands are Ukraine...just like #Crimea is Ukraine" Image
#Russia's annexation "does not change the nature of the conflict ... it does not change our commitment to support Ukraine" per @NATO's @jensstoltenberg

Casually or not, the #Baltic & North Sea region is getting riskier during the last 24hours.

🇳🇴🇬🇧Norway declared the risk of drones over its gas & oil offshore platforms.
🇩🇰Denmark reported several gas leaks on #NordStream 1 and 2.
🇷🇺'000s of Russians refugees.

Certainly, the #Article5 is clear. But seems like #Russia is doing hybrids interventions exploiting some gray areas.

Pipelines (left) and tankers (right) are vulnerable.🧵
The North Sea has an important development of 512 offshore platforms. Static targets.

The idea of taxpayers paying for oil firms' decommissioning bills has been an ongoing issue we’ve tried to grapple with at EV – easily misrepresented because it's confusing.
The way analysts and commentators have explained it to me over the years is as follows...
In previous years, oil companies have paid more tax than they were due to – they’ve put money into the Treasury over and above their annual requirement.
When they get to the point of decommissioning – which is so costly that it effectively wipes out their profits...
..they then claim a rebate back from the Treasury which is used to justify their expenditure.
That is not “fresh” money, it should have been sitting there for them to claim back. So, in effect, there is no net cost to the taxpayer.

#Hydronomastics is the study of #hydronyms, the proper names of bodies of water.

It's a branch of #toponomastics, the study of #toponyms (the proper names of places), which in turn is a branch of #onomastics, the study of #orthonyms (proper names).

#Hydronym and #hydronomastics both derive from Ancient #Greek ὕδωρ / húdōr (water) + ὄνομα / ónoma (name). The Greek island of Skiatho...
#Hydronyms tend to outlast other #toponyms, even when new #languages and cultures displace earlier ones.

#England, #EastAnglia, #Essex, and #Sussex are named for the #Angles and #Saxons; but #Trent, #Ouse, #Thames, #Severn, and #Avon are older #Celtic and #RomanoBritish names. A map showing the main rive...
