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

Global Warming stopped 16 years ago according to a recent met office report. This is not ‘pie in the sky’ reportage but based on real statistics, even if this report is in the Daily Mail What we have to remember is … Continue reading
SNP policy on offshore wind and it’s position on Nuclear, placating the many old CND supporters within the SNP, may be putting the defense of our nation in mortal danger. An intriguing comment worthy of discussion and condsideration
In this case what is so for America is the same for the United Kingdom
The Island of Foula was lauded as the first community to be reliant 100% on Renewable Energy. Except that it is not. The wind turbines failed in the last gales, and anyway are turned off in the bird breeding season, … Continue reading
Just a brief note today about the Inquiry at Edinburgh and the support. Looking at the video of the meeting I think we should all admire the clear and concise information provided by CATS. Donald Trump may not be everyone’s … Continue reading
Chris Huhne and the DECC have ordered energy companies to install smart meters in every UK Home by 2019 at the cost of nearly £12 billion. A policy inherited from Ed Milliband and the last Labour administration. Chris Huhne argues … Continue reading
I have had another “Victor Meldrew” moment. I can’t believe it!! We have other country’s reprocessed nuclear waste that we have encased in concrete and stored in steel drums. The agreement seems to be that it was to be returned … Continue reading
Despite UK sales falling by 8% French owned EDF Energy has posted a record profit of £2.3 billion post tax(!) for 2011, up £1.7 billion from 2010. This is on the back of steep energy increases imposed by the big six … Continue reading
The whole issue of renewables is concentrated on the EU targets on Carbon and CO2. The issues of future availability of fossil fuels, the future of nuclear energy or the development of alternative energy sources such as gas frakking pale … Continue reading
When is a subsidy not a subsidy? Certain apologists for wind, apparatchiks of the industry or munchkins of the Climate Change departments, have launched a vigorous attack against the 101 Conservative MPs who dared to attack the wind industry. … Continue reading

ALLT DUINE: Objection Achieved! The application for the Allt Duine Wind Farm by RWE-Npower was rejected by Highland Council today 17.01.12 by a vote of 9 for the proposal to reject against three to approve. This was after a site visit which included a … Continue reading
Just got a letter from my electricity supplier with updated terms and conditions. One particular term mentioned is the Climate Change Levy: The Climate Change Levy (CCL) was set up to support renewable generation and is a TAX applied and collected … Continue reading
Renewables UK bragged to the BBC yesterday that the 100mph winds had resulted in record output from Renewable resources at 60% of capacity. Bullsh*t! Firstly wind turbines are designed to turn themselves off at over 58mph for safety reasons and … Continue reading
Science to me has been the ongoing search for truth. There is no such thing in Science as consensus. If there was, the world would still be flat! Why then has modern science from the American Physical Society to the … Continue reading
The Stirling Engine was invented by the Rev. Robert Stirling in 1816. Best descibed as an external combustion engine, it uses a heat source which could be solar, geothermal or biomass to power it. Connected to a generator it could … Continue reading
Osmotic Power supply I have often been critical of the single minded approach to UK Renewable resources in Wind Energy and have oft questioned the practical application of wave and tide. Essentially both have the problem of intermittancy and the … Continue reading
As a critic of wind power, you often get the challenge “if not wind where do we get our power if fossil fuels are no longer an option”. First response must surely be that ditch the EU Carbon targets which … Continue reading
© Fenbeagle Unbelievable as it may seem, the arch villian Chris Huhne has come up with another crazy idea. He supports the 80mph speed limit but only for electric cars (Politics Show – BBC on Sunday). That seems like the … Continue reading
£9,453,249 was paid to wind farms in Scotland to stand idle up between January 1st up to September 28th this year (53 days) contributing to the already staggering profits of the WF Developers! In September alone the National Grid paid out Constraint payments to Scottish … Continue reading
