What an odd report, both the USA and China have far greater energy demands and available sea bad so of course over time they will outgrow any amount of generation capacity that the UK (or even the EU) deploys.

It's an odd choice of words too - "threat" is usually a word referring to bad things. This is a good thing on every level - both more clean energy and potentially a market for UK expertise in offshore wind installation.

As above, really.  An otherwise out of work ‘journalist’ getting paid for a useless column in some news-starved publication.

Stating the obvious and hyping up the details is the usual trait of a poor report by a poor reporter.  It was certainly not ’news’.
