With some element of hilarity, we note that the photograph of a wind turbine factory, chosen to illustrate the plight of Vesta Wind Systems, accompanies an article headed: "Green Job Growth Outpacing Other Industries". The same factory, which so proudly heralded this news now accompanies a report headed: "Vestas Plunges as Wind-Turbine Maker Cuts Forecasts Blaming Delayed Orders". The company which manufactures the blade illustrated lost almost a quarter of its value in Copenhagen trading after reporting a larger-than-expected loss and cut forecasts. It blames "delayed orders."

Since it breaks the laws of physics to produce the required demand for wind turbines in the UK, I can't see how there can be anything but delays.
By the way, that is a scary looking beast in that factory. I'd hate to be anywhere near one of those in a mobile state.

Hmmmmm.

The "delays" might have been occasioned by someone checking that the actual average contribution of BigWind to UK electricity generation January - June 2010 was just 0.8%, for around 3,000 turbines. For many weeks during that period (especially January / February) the contribution of BigWind was close to zero. There is no doubt that the "emissions" saved for the whole six months will have been very close to the additional "emissions" required to keep thermal plant inefficiently on spinning standby to attempt to keep the grid in balance for those occasions when wind speeds were somewhere near the "correct" level.

BigWind = BigSnakeOil.

So, shall we follow BuffHuhne's ambition to stick up another 15,000 turbines? What a good idea! (Especially if your Gaffer's missus has her snout deep in the BigWind trough.)

On a related subject I have just had my request for information on "Wind turbines causing bird deaths" from Scottish Natural Heritage. Their appears to be no peer reviewed papers, only grey and so far nothing of consequence that's been done in the UK. A couple of papers from Norway on Eagle, Willow ptarmigan and various other bird deaths and the apparent effect of the turbines on bird behavior. I wonder why there is so little research?

Just a thought: will the American legal shysters attempt to redefine hurricanes as "wind slicks" thereby making foreign turbine manufacturers liable for all damages real or imagined?

It seems that the Chinese are declaring a cold war against climate change nuts, seeing it as a Developed Country conspiracy against Developing Countries. See: http://libertygibbert.wordpress.com/rar ... rbon-plot/

I'd say that pretty well puts the kibbosh on the "warmists", including EU warmist governments etc, getting anywhere globally with the AGW lie. Excellent, I say. And fancy being rescued by the Chinese. Wonders will never cease!

Slightly OT

Islamic Bloc Blames ‘Global Warming’ for Pakistan Flooding
Thursday, August 19, 2010
By Patrick Goodenough, International Editor

(CNSNews.com) – The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has blamed the flooding in Pakistan on “global warming,” even though scientists are generally wary of linking any single or series of weather events on climate change.

The bloc of 56 Islamic states held an emergency meeting in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, and agreed to consider setting up an emergency fund to respond to future disasters like that one now unfolding in Pakistan, where millions of people have been displaced.

Off topic, but for those who don't frequent Bishop Hill, Bob Ward has been at it again

It looks as if the Americans are being blamed for bad weather in Pakistan, Russia, China etc. See http://therearenosunglasses.wordpress.c ... cy-theory/
It doesn't matter whether or not they are guilty, a lot of people will blame them - and seek revenge.

When the Empire loses prestige, respect turns to contempt and when the Americans run out of money to pay bribes they will run out of 'friends'.

http://therearenosunglasses.wordpress.c ... protected/ This sort of news won't help them to 'win friends and influence people'.
