I can't believe Nostradamus hasn't got a mention, surely he hinted at it somewhere in his writings . .

Re: Rising cost of living

Basically Green policies stuffing everything up. Cold winter(ie global warming strangely absent), Germany abandoning Nuclear Power and relying on Wind power instead, just in time for a long term lull in wind. All leading to a massive demand for Gas.

I think Germany's gone more from nuclear to coal and gas.

On the inflation front, more cheery news, traders are betting on the Bank of England raising interest rates next month.

They are moving away from coal as well. They relied on wind power with gas as a backup.
Looking at the energy capacity figures, in theory they should be able to do without coal and nuclear. Solar and Wind is just not that reliable to be able to rely on it, so you have to backup plants as well.

I would add January and February to that list!
Finally the government has a plan, Krazy Kwarteng is praying for a mild winter, you couldn't make this shower up

This is what happens when you listen to people like Greta without engaging brain.

Key thing with wind and solar is storage and we've not invested in that.

I've just had a nice week on the N Yorks Coast. However a lot of it seems to be crumbling into the sea, with coastal paths diverted ever inland. It's us and recent generations that have screwed things up. We've now got to pay the price.
