Scottish renewables

When thinking about a general trend – such as increasing the usage of renewables for electricity generation – it is often helpful to consider a case study. Wikipedia’s article on renewable energy in Scotland makes for an interesting read.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

One thought on “Scottish renewables”

  1. Scots smoke ban ‘improved health’

    The Scottish smoking ban has led to a significant advance in public health, the most detailed scientific study of the measure so far has suggested.

    The main findings of the study were;

    * The ban has reduced second-hand smoke exposure in both children and adults.

    * Among primary school children, levels of a by-product of nicotine fell by more than a third (39%) following the ban.

    * In adults, cotinine levels fell by almost half (49%) in non-smokers from non-smoking households.

    * Non-smokers living in smoking households continued to have high levels of second hand smoke exposure in the home.

    * And the authors suggest that further action is urgently required to support smoking households to implement smoke-free homes and cars.
