Germany has been held up as the Green example in Europe. More onshore windfarms than most, more offshore and a cancellation of the Nuclear program. Problem is that it is all turning pear shaped with German industry becoming uncompetitive and now German consumers facing rising energy bills that they simply cannot afford. I think Osborne understands and also hopefully Cameron but the Lib-Dims are stuck in a time warp and still follow the doctrine of AGW, despite everyone else in Europe running away from it as though it is the plague! Read this report and use every opportunity to point out that Germany has a big, big problem. Do we really want to be like sheep to the slaughter or rush headlong like lemmings into the off-shore wind farms.

Wind V. Coal
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
