On March 21, the Bermuda Government tabled a report which says that liquefied natural gas, commonly known as LNG, is a more economically and environmentally attractive fuel than our present diesel-fuel oil.

It then went on to massively overreach the conclusions of the report and stated that it was considering going ahead and soliciting proposals to build the new LNG plant and convert existing electricity-generating facilities to LNG.

Professor Karl McDermott, an experienced regulator and consultant to Belco who works out of the University of Illinois, points out that “we need to recognise that the ‘modern’ vision [of electricity generation and use] that evolved from the 1920s through the 1980s relied on a technocratic solution that minimised the role of the customer as decision-maker”.
