Lies, damned lies, and “The Wind is Free”

No it’s not.  It’s very expensive indeed (or at least energy generated from wind is expensive — and intermittent).  It’s an existential threat to our economy and our energy security (see piece below).  So I couldn’t resist bringing home this little badge from one of the companies we met in Vaasa, Finland.

The truth is, we’re falling out of love with the Great Carbon Myth, and with renewables, and with wind turbines.  But just not fast enough.

    I’m glad you posted this because I felt that yesterday’s comments had gaps, but more importantly the IEA link given by John Russell to their press release was useful, but also astonishing.
    This was going back to the fantasy-land of 10 years ago with (one example only) talk of 6 deg. C global temperature increase by 2050. Even Prof Phil Jones (UEA) said in 2010 that 0.16 deg. per decade is more reasonable – and that from a “warmist”. Hasn’t the IEA learned that almost all of the disaster forecasts have been deconstructed?
    By coincidence, I am right now looking at a wind farm (i.e. subsidy farm) application for an East Midlands site. As a resident I may comment only on environmental issues, but technical items, strategic targets, and economics issues put forward as “facts” are out of date; subject to unstated provisos; devised by wishful thinking and suffer from relevant omissions.

    Are you disillusioned by rising electricity prices, over dependence on the “green” dream [especially uneconomical and inefficient wind farms] and the destruction of our countryside then please object to the Government at
