Boris Blown Away: True Cost of PM’s Offshore Wind Power Plan is Absolutely Staggering

A MW of intermittent offshore wind power capacity costs up to 17 times the cost of a thoroughly reliable MW of gas-fired power generation. And, whereas, the latter is available around-the-clock, the former is available when Mother Nature deems fit. And she tends to be a temperamental, old cow. One particular wheeze among Britain’s renewable […]

Fools and Other People’s Money: Wind Industry Bamboozles Boris With ‘Wind Power’s Cheap’ Myth

  Boris Johnson’s plan to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on subsidies and over-the-market contracts for intermittent offshore wind power is positively bonkers. At a time when Britain needs all the help it can get to claw itself out of its self-inflicted lockdown recession, its PM is determined to snuff out all hope, thanks to a […]

Into The Black: Calm Weather Leaves Britain’s Power Grid At Risk Of Total Collapse

Boris Johnson reckons wind power’s the future for Britain. If so, it’s a future that will soon resemble England’s bitter Dark Ages. The UK has already had its taste of mass blackouts thanks to sudden and unpredictable collapses in wind power output. Now, as Brits head into winter, it’s a case of much more of […]

Puffins Pummelled: Offshore Wind Turbines Annihilating Britain’s Seabirds: Entire Species Threatened

Plans to erect thousands more of these things around Britain’s coasts, spell the death knell for millions of seabirds, with several species under threat. While Greta frets about global incineration and mass extinctions, the wind industry is doing a very fine job of extinguishing millions of birds and bats, every year. Indeed, entire species are […]

If insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, then Boris Johnson is clearly barking mad. The UK PM’s latest cunning plan is to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on government guaranteed fixed price contracts – paying way above market rates – subsidies and taxpayer support for chaotically intermittent wind […]
