UK first day without coal since industrial revolution.

Fri Apr 21, 2017 6:46 am

An historic day, Britain is set to run without coal power for a whole day on Friday (today) for the first time since the Industrial Revolution. A decade ago, such a feat would have been “unimaginable,” according to Greenpeace. https://www.rt.com/uk/385587-coal-indus ... reenpeace/

Cool!

Nice pic of Battersea Power Station too. Only thing is I would have rather seen it pictured with an old school Routemaster bus.

The only time I lived outside of Lancashire before coming here was a few years I spent with my Gran and Grandad in Battersea. Grandad was a Park Warden in Battersea Park.
