This week Craig talks to Common Weal’s Robin McAlpine about the energy transition that Scotland needs to go through if we are to meet our obligation to avert the climate emergency. Scotland is in many ways in an envious position with rich resources and potential for decarbonising our energy needs. Robin discusses how we do that to each of Scotland’s three main energy uses – Electricity, Transport and Heat – and why The oil and gas sector are actively hindering rather than supporting the required transition and why Scottish and UK Government energy policies fall far short of the required goals.

You can read Craig’s article about the oil sector post-fossil fuels here.
