Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the
equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun

Wind turbines would need to cover Wales to supply a sixth of country’s energy needs

AN area the size of Wales would need to be covered in wind turbines to meet just a sixth of the nation’s daily energy needs, according to a new study that has cast doubt over the Government’s push for wind energy.

By analysing the average power output possible from wind turbines and comparing it to the amount of land needed to house each turbine, Professor MacKay believes wind farms will need at least five times more land than has been previously estimated.

His research has raised further doubts over the viability of the Government’s push for wind power.

Critics insist that wind energy is too unreliable to replace the creaking network of fossil fuel power stations and would require an extensive network of back up power stations to provide energy on calm days.

Wind farms have also faced intense opposition from rural campaigners who say the huge turbines, which can be up to 400 feet tall, are spoiling the countryside and pose a risk to wildlife.

If Greens love nature, why aren’t they more concerned about carpeting unspoilt, pristine landscapes with bat-chomping, bird-slicing, [industrial] eco crucifixes….?
