A recent article by that thorn in the DECC’s side Chris Booker has again asked where the government is headed. Click here to read. Following the logic discussed by one commentator makes a reasonable conclusion. Developers talk about capacity as though it is megawatts on call all the time. Capacity is only the maximum output in perfect, or optimum, wind conditions. The maximum useable “output”will be some twenty per cent below that figure after line losses and voltage regulation. Now the Logic. If the wind does not blow, the capacity is zero. Therefore logically the maximum reliable capacity of any wind farm is ZERO! Now seeing as Mr. Cameron’s choice of Christmas Dinner companions and PR advisors is decidedly suspect, may we advise him to take the advice of the DECC, it’s Secretary of State and it’s Ministers with a great deal of circumspection. After all if Rupert Murdoch can close the News of the World cannot our Prime Minister close the DECC for it’s often dubious behaviour too. And if you question my logic in this jump have a quick look at this link Lord Turnbull Trashes the IPCC Report And while we are about it how about the comments of Maurizio Morabito “Why AGW is logically Impossible” (This is not our recommendation, just a reflection of other, sometimes quirky, viewpoints)

Quote of the Decade
"The trouble with wind farms is that they have a very large spatial footprint for a piddling little bit of electricity. You would need 8oo turbines to produce the output of a coal-fired power station."
Sir Martin Holgate, Chief Scientist at the Department of the Environment of the British Government - October 2004
