Dear editor,

So let me get this straight. Alastair Cooper, Steven Coutts and Uncle Carmichael and all are seriously proposing that by sacrificing the ecology of much of the Shetland archipelago in order to justify a connection to export power to subsidise Scottish and Southern Electricity thereby allowing Shell, BP, et al to get cheap power to create more hydrocarbons while still flaring off thousands of tonnes of carbon rich unwanted gas into the atmosphere while promising cheap transportable hydrogen and so on, and so on, is, in some way, a good thing for Shetland’s population?

Please explain this apparent conundrum.
