We have written about wind farms and the fatuity of the EU’s renewable energy plans so many times on this blog that we are in danger of boring even ourselves into a catatonic trance. How many times can you repeat that the entire policy is utter madness, complete insanity, a breathtaking departure from reality?

Well, with slightly more patience and endurance than I am able to muster, Booker says it again in The Daily Mail today, telling us, "Why spending £100bn on windfarms to please the EU is Labour's greatest act of lunacy."

Could you provide links to your previous analyses of this insanity ?
This is not just another minor lunacy that could be undone by a new government. This has the potential to move us back to the dark ages within a decade.

Try this - you will need to do a little bit of sorting, but most of them are here:

For reference, the "Google" search box at the top left of the blog page will search only the blog - and it works tolerably well.

Richard, do you know how to dig into political contributions ? I'm sure I remember seeing a reference to Doughty Hanson, the big private equity firm, being big contributors to Tony Blair a few years back, when wind first started hitting the news. I notice from this :

http://www.planetark.org/dailynewsstory ... /story.htm

that they are probably going to be making a fortune from this insane "dash for wind". If they are still at it, is this something that might get traction in the MSM ? How to get data ?

That's just the downpayment - we then pay, and pay, and pay ...

Armageddon Evans-Pritchard writes on it today as well - in the business section, of course, though it's potentially one of our biggest problems.

One can make a very good arguement that the cost of energy is reflecting this madness, the mkts aren't stupid, it's their job to see and listen to all this balderdash and price energy accordingly. The catastrophic alliance between the never elected Greens and the terminally greedy for taxes, mainstream politicians has so far shut down all sensible debate.

So until we grow up, the mkts are going to keep prices very high, which will fuel inflation and increase the severity of the comming recession, which will increase unemployment, which will further wreck house prices and make voters very angry, about paying out even more of what little they have left, all in order to keep the likes of George " Tosh for Dosh" Monbiot happy and wealthy.....

And you write books about people spreading scare stories? I am getting scared to even read your blog these days, there is so much bad news just round the corner

Hmm, well, how about an Anglosphere term? Let's just say that, judging by the graph, you've been royally f***ed. No offense meant to the Crown.

I cannot understand how apparently intelligent people do not understand that when the wind doesn't blow you need full demandable capacity. Only after that is secure can you start farting around with unreliables like wind, tide etc.

Oil hits 141.79.....seems the Curse of Gordo has struck again....

Meanwhile the Green Tosser is deep in consultation with Mad Zac, George "Tosh for Dosh" Monbiot and Tony "Back to the Stone Age" Jupiter, to map out our future Energy policy......

It is no use, the Danes pay the Germans millions of Euros a year to take the wind surges out of the Danish electrical grid ( this is Europe's biggest wind farm ) The Danes are putting a large percentage of there wind turbines out of service, the cost to the European tax payer? hundreds of millions.

The problem? the public, they keep electing failed used car salesmen/women into positions of responsibility, it should be compulsory for ALL school exams to include questions on the 'Peter Principle' but then the school system is run by the idiots that should be expelled for ignorance.
