Walt Patterson On Energy


If you're visiting us for the first time, Home is a good place to start. Title and Welcome will bring you back here.

The key news this year is why there has been no news to report here. On 18 December last year I was struck by an MCA infarct, a serious stroke that did some brain damage, that put me out of action for a while. I was, however, very lucky, in that I escaped the often severe damage typical of that kind of stroke. I can still talk and walk okay, and my memory seems intact. I do get very tired very quickly, and find using a mouse and keyboard more difficult than before.

But I'm gradually getting back to normal. For convenience I've moved the links that were previously on this page to recent work. I hope to have some positive news about genuinely recent work ere long. Wish me luck and watch this space.

Why are so many governments now franticly trying to get more natural gas to waste? in July 2007 the Chatham House magazine The World Today published my artcle entitled 'Loft Insulation As Foreign Policy. If the governments of the UK and the EU had acted as the article suggested, Russia's Vladimir Putin would not now be able to blackmail the West by reducing its supply of natural gas. Even now. albeit belated, the suggested policy still makes sense. Do read it, and perhaps pass it on to your MP or relevant elected representative.
