Brits Belted by Insanely Expensive and Utterly Unreliable Wind Power

Senator Chris Back: Wind Industry must prove its CO2 abatement claims

**** In our last post we tipped a bucket on the central, endlessly repeated lie trotted out by the wind industry and its parasites, that Australia’s great wind rush has resulted in substantial reductions of CO2 emissions in the electricity sector.
