I refer to this from Renewable Energy Focus and Scottish Renewables, both of which at first sight look like 'Fake Charities'.
From the former:
"A funding call for wave and tidal power by RenewableUK has received widespread support from MPs and leading industry figures."
A number of points:
This looks very much like a plea for more taxpayer's money so that those working for these two organisations can remain employed. It also looks like yet another 'scam' whereby taxpayers end up paying even more on their energy bills. That MPs have lent widespread support leads one to question their logicality, especially as the present wind-power arguments appear to be falling apart. That leading energy figures have also leant their support only leads to the conclusion there are yet more 'mentalists (geddit?) wishing to 'cash in'!
We the people have only two requests: (a) that before you begin, you ensure the lights can 'stay on'; and (b) if it is such a good idea, how come you're not prepared to finance the project yourselves?
