North Sea should start decommissioning now, says Green party


The UK oil and gas industry should start decommissioning now in order to allow the north-east to come the global leader in renewable energy, the Scottish Green Party leader said last night. Patrick Harvie MSP, co-convener of the Scottish Greens and the party's economy and energy spokesperson, claims a recent report has shown that “many more jobs” would be created in and around Aberdeen through the renewable sector than would be lost if the offshore industry completely collapsed.
