There is clearly danger of a spill-over into Bahrain and the eastern province of Saudi Arabia, home to the Kingdom’s aggrieved Shia and most of its oil. Even so, the Iran risk premium in global crude prices is only $10 to $15.

We must still face the overwhelming fact that global energy supply is on a knife-edge regardless of events in the Gulf - with no relief in sight.

The IEA warned in its annual report that energy demand will rise 40pc by 2035.

The world must invest $1.5 trillion just to avoid a lethal crunch. Even then prices are likely to rise “viciously” unless nuclear power and the renewable family of hydro, wind, and solar can come to the rescue. Fukushima has killed nuclear expansion in Japan, Germany, and beyond. The green drive has faltered, oddly vilified in this country by conservatives who should be its natural defenders.

Mindfulness and Psychotherapy


Concentrate on your intention to open your heart more fully.

Trust that by planting seeds (intention) and attending to them (practice),

the harvest (empathy) will follow organically.
