Owners of electric cars should be compelled to keep them parked on top of hills and mountains, with wind turbines at the top. This would make them consider, carefully, whether they can be bothered using electric cars. If there is no wind, they can get a bit of a charge going downhill, just like their financial planning.

Idiots abound - Scottish Power high heid-yin (translation: CEO) Keith Anderson warns that the grid won't have enough capacity to charge electric cars. Then says that we need to keep building windfarms...

Scottish Power says UK will need to boost capacity

(comments allowed - presumably because it is on the Scottish section of the BBC website, so beyond Harrabin's control)

I wonder if householders could take legal action against Green Blob Environmentalists for obstructing the clearance of woodland scrub in Australia that led to major fires, or more locally, the maintenance of land drainage that led to flooding on the Somerset Levels 4 years ago?

Wind Generators are always sold/marketed/advertised/promoted on their ability to generate electricity, during optimum conditions.

A bit like VW diesels under idealised test conditions.

The BBC (and other sectors of the media) are happy to broadcast these unobtainable statistics without question.

There ought to be a Law about false accounting and making deceptive claims, to obtain taxpayer funding.

Campaigning British legals act for children in Portugal over forest fires.

Children (apparently between 5 and 14 years old) are crowdfunding this action spearheaded by Global Legal Action Network - eesh ... heaven help us when they grow up....

Chldren vs. The Countries of Europe

I wonder if there's any connections to Leigh Day or renegades from PIL on the team?

A test run to move parts for a new windfarm in north Cumbria takes place tomorrow.

Components for 125 metre high wind turbines will be on the move to Hallburn Wind Farm near Longtown in the coming weeks.

Short delays are expected on the A7 and in the centre of Longtown on the run through.

Components for 125 metre high wind turbines will be on the move to Hallburn Wind Farm near Longtown in the coming weeks.

Short delays are expected on the A7 and in the centre of Longtown on the run through.
Sixteen convoys, each consisting of three vehicles with police escort, will transport the components.

Hallburn Wind Farm will consist of six 2.2MW wind turbines which will generate electricity equivalent to the needs of around 10,100 households.

A few questions spring to mind:

1. Where are the Greenpeace protests?
2. Who is paying for the police?
3. Will the turbines really generate all that electricity, or just have the capacity to do so?
4. How much diesel is used in transporting these things to the wind farm location?
5. How much CO2 and other greenhouse gases are generated through the entire process of manufacturing, transporting, and installing (and, one hopes, ultimately decommissioning) them?
