Wind Power Fails Miserably

The UK is covered in snow as shown in this amazing satellite photo and to prevent people from freezing the electricity generators are running flat out - that is , except for the wind generators running at at a tiny 3.5% capacity.
So when the greenies manage to change the UK's power over to wind and solar expect a huge life loss due to freezing temperatures because neither will supply power when it is most needed. It is time to stop this idiocy now .


  1. Bring back the Man of La Mancha I say. Don Quixote would be in his element dancing around with the alternative energy crazies, tilting at all of those useless windmills while singing the "The Impossible Dream".

  3. These warmest decade is the result of careful selection of results for UHI and semantics because if the temperature has plateaud and is well on the way down it may still be true.However until raw data is freely available I dispute the statement
