The poor value wind turbines deliver in return for the subsidy

When Christopher Booker isn’t ploughing a lonely furrow exposing the disturbing secret behaviour of the courts as they put children into care or take them to be put up for adoption; he is making the weather on the wind turbines – and specifically this week reminding us of how the weather reduces their already poor performance to even more rotten levels.

Yet even though the facts Booker has presented are accepted by DECC – meaning their projections for wind power generation are being significantly overstated – DECC is continuing to use their incorrect and inflated numbers to justify the proliferation of wind turbines at vast expense to taxpayers, in return for even less energy than the fraction of capacity they already deliver.

    And we heard also the weasel Davey on 5 Live telling lies through his teeth unchallenged that the UK are world leaders in wind. The new subsidies will help us keep that lead. The generating equipment, the cables and mist of the engineers come from overseas. It makes me SO angry. I know that writing to my MP is pointless, he represents his party, not his constituents.

    When ‘they’ turned from the “Dash for Gas” and went all “Waft for Wind”, I was struck by the SILENCE regarding tidal-stream power. Knowing the fundamentally corrupt state of this country, and the defining deceitfulness of its power elite (we have no leaders) I smelled CONSTRUCTIVE FAILURE. Their intent was/is either panic-to-nuclear or politically useful mayhem. (You may choose.) With our marine experience and history of ship and oil-rig building, we could have been well ahead in the “Triumph of Tidal” by now. WIND WAS SET UP TO FAIL. What is the greater agenda? Who is in charge?

    Many years ago when I was gainfully employed, I dealt with the Admiralty on a valve to shut off pipe supply lines for fuel in an emergency. The Valves were aluminium and had to be powder coated to protect them against sea water. It attacks aluminium and other metals with great gusto and if you add in the large temperature changes and the sea bed, offshore wind farms are a disaster waiting to happen. All this was known many, many years ago, any engineer would avoid the problems like this.

    Spot on Derek. That must have been about the time cars were an intimate mix of iron and alumininium alloys. And salt lay deep and crisp and uneven every Winter.

    Aye! HOT wind. They should stick to farting through their arses and not through their mouths…. although sometimes, with them, the difference is hard to tell.

    Also(!) Germany built thousands of these “sea turbines”, and now not ONE of them is “on-line” because NO one will insure them!! :-D :-D

    Meanwhile this tidal steam junkie notes a new kid on the block: Tidal Sails.
