I have worked on wood, coal, and nuke power generating stations. Acid rain is produced by coal. This is good for the farms and gardens, but bad for humans.
What is the effect of the peat used in Ireland? Will that produce acid rain?
I think the use of gas from the sea, outside Ireland, gas wells is a good thing. Is it? We use a big 500 lp gas tank to heat, hot water and cook. Our gas pipe line is 2 miles from the house and is about half the price of lp gas. I started last year using wood in the fireplace I put in. I burn alot of wood in a week. There are are a lot of dead trees on our land. When the fire in the fireplace goes out, the furnace kicks in.
Here in the state they are putting in gas peaker plant which are gas turbine and then we get higher gas prices. The feed pipes are 2 feet across and think of the gas that goes through in an hour. I worked on one in Dundee, Il. that was brought from Columbia (bandits keep shuting it down I hear) and made in England, a company named Bread. It only is supposed to come on in the high use peak times.
