Most young people will not know what the hell these are; they were big ugly things that could expand and contract and, most importantly, store masses of gas.
But you do not see these anymore. They reached their end if life and were torn down, nothing was built in their place. Of course, we have been concentrating too much on green energy and ignoring everything else.
No gas storage for emergencies, no investment in small modular reactors; absolutely none of that and we are in the mess that we are in now. We now live “hand to mouth” when it comes to energy supplies with absolutely no though of what if? What if the wind does not blow for a month? What if Russia whose gas we rely on turns the tap down?
It has all been gross short termism, banking on every day being “happy days”
