Here's a remarkable coincidence!  No sooner had Viscount Matt Ridley blogged under title: " WIND MAKES ELECTRICITY EXPENSIVE AND UNRELIABLE WITHOUT CUTTING EMISSIONS",  than new UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Right Hon Amber Rudd, made a  major speech announcing the Conservative Government's explicit intention to prioritise energy security and affordability over the climate agenda. Among other aims, this implies that the proposed phase-out of unabated coal-fired generating plants will be conditional on whetheer the shift to new gas plants can be achieved within this time.
