self-sufficiency in 20 years?

Here is an example of the type of excellent work that the Cornish Assembly would be able to undertake if and when established:

Wales plans for energy self-sufficiency with renewables in 20 years

Ambitious, legally binding plans 'set an example for the rest of the world to follow', says Jonathan Porritt

Wales today laid out radical plans to make it one of the most energy- and resource-efficient countries in the world within a generation.

The government development plans, which are legally binding, are far in advance of anything planned for England or Scotland and would see it become energy self-sufficient in using renewable electricity within 20 years and reduce waste to zero by 2050.

The report sets out a series of ambitious goals:

• to produce more electricity from renewables than the nation consumes within 20 years

• increase recycling rates from 36% today to over 70% by 2025

• send just 5% of Welsh waste to landfill sites by 2025

• phasing out free plastic bags

• developing new marine and biomass energy plants
