The Independent: "Stand by for a world energy crisis"
Link to web site
"Jeremy Leggett couldn’t have chosen a better time to warn that we are heading for a world energy crisis so ghastly that the Great Financial Crash will look like a storm in a teacup.
"The 'Big Six' energy companies are in the dock squabbling over rising charges, the politicians are electioneering with dodgy promises to reduce prices, while a horrifying number of people say they will choose between heating and eating this winter.
"If Mr Leggett is right, it’s not only candles and jumpers we will need, but our own generators as well."
