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

Back in May 2012 I posted info on the first(?) compressed air car, the Airpod. Well Peugot bought out the design and we thought it was to be consigned to an urban myth. Peugot has now launched a prototype of … Continue reading
This leaflet is what they call their new leaflet and is often to be found at Community Consultation meetings the length and breadth of the Country. Version one was slammed by the ASA and all that RUK did was re-lable … Continue reading
From one Politician to another we hear this figure of 100% renewable energy spouted as the holy grail. What is certain these people haven’t a clue what they are on about. Even if 100% of energy generation was renewable; something … Continue reading
Not a lot apparently. We have two bits of information to share but first we must consider Ed Davey triumphant announcement about Carbon Capture at Peterhead. First Peterhead is a gas powered generating station so CO² is not at the … Continue reading

Ed Davey has lost the plot and is about to blow £100,000,000 of public money on a ‘Carbon Capture and Storage’ project. As you might expect, EU directives lie behind this lunacy. The recipients…
There are three problems with electric cars. Range, weight and the ability to recharge quickly. Well there are lots more, like cost, resale value and the fact that the electricity is 97% likely to be from fossil fuelled power stations … Continue reading
Michael Fallon has taken the bull by the horns and, regardless of the sycophantic support of wind by his boss Ed Davey, has castigated the wind industry for their consumption of some £30 million of Constraint Payments when the wind … Continue reading
Well Fairburn 2 has been cancelled. SSE say that it is on the basis of a lack of financial viability. Dalnessie, another SSE application, in Sutherland has suffered a similar fate(?). We should remember that Fairburn 2, at only 38MW, was … Continue reading
The Scottish Government routinely return to the Moffat report that they allege suggests tourists will not be put off by Wind Turbines. They only ever read the Executive Summary as a proper investigation shows one hotel had changed hands (because it was … Continue reading
Tourist companies join protests about offshore wind farms Credit: Wednesday 19 February 2014 | http://www.dutchnews.nl ~~ The tourist industry has added its voice to the campaign against massive investment in wind farms off the Dutch coast, Nos television says … Continue reading
See the story here: London Array The reason given is the impact on birds. Couldn’t have anything to do with the banks not lending them the brass then?

Well this is not a new tack from me(an appropriate nautical reference) but the Fishing Industry is at last fighting back. Whilst the SNP have in the past defended Scottish Fisheries, or at least certain Ministers have as it enables … Continue reading
Somerset levels or Dawlish. Both have history and nothing is particularly new. What is new is our environmental agenda that runs a green line against common sense. In the Somerset Levels or Moors, a man made system of drainage built … Continue reading
Beinn Mhor is a proposal by WPD, a German Wind Developer, to destroy the area above Tomich and trash the entrance to Glen Affric. Quoted by the head of planning when he was appraised of this as over my dead … Continue reading
It is depressing to witness yet other wind turbine application. One can only despair the desecration of the Highlands. I am tempted to look at Don Quixote for consolation: “ ….just then they came in sight of thirty or forty … Continue reading
