In London, as in Paris, the show must go on
By Richard Heap

In November 2015, the WindEurope annual conference took place in Paris three days after terrorists killed 130 people in the city, including 89 at the Bataclan theatre.

We wrote at the time that it was right for the event to go ahead. The world, and wind, cannot stand still. That was true of Paris just 19 months ago, and it is true of London now.

This week, WindEurope and RenewableUK are set to host their Offshore Wind Energy 2017 conference in London. It starts three days after terrorists killed seven people and wounded 48 in an attack on the bustling hub of London Bridge on Saturday night.

This comes just one week after a suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured 59 at a concert in Manchester; and little over two months since an attack on Westminster Bridge that killed five and injured 49.

“It is difficult to believe we are facing a similar situation again,” said the statement from the organisers yesterday, as they announced that the conference would happen as planned. We agree with both their sentiment and their decision. Terrorist attacks are scary, of course, but our risk of being harmed in one is small. Those of us in cities continue to live with this risk.

That means going about business as usual as far as we can: undaunted, uncowed and in the knowledge that the statistics are overwhelmingly in our favour...
