Another erudite argument from Christopher Booker in the Telegraph. What amazes me is that so few see the reality. I wonder how many of these ‘environmentalists’ jet off around the world on their multiple holidays. How many have 50in plus LED TVs and how many have ipads, iphones and every ‘necessity’ to modern living. In fact how many are urban sparrows rather than rural ‘low carbon footprint’ dwellers. What I am aware is that few are realists! But then it is easy to pontificate from a warm centrally heated city dwelling with a safe public sector job paying for all the luxury of being an ‘environmentalist’ . It is a true fact that only wealthy countries can afford to be ecologically and environmentally interested in the environment. The rest of the world has to survive or starve!

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
