Latest news out of Britain on the initiative toward large-scale electric generation from wind:
“Ten years too late, it’s good riddance to wind farms – one of the most dangerous delusions of our age”
Britain has built 3,500 large wind turbines at a cost of on the order of $30 billion that, because of wind’s low capacity factor, produce as much power as fewer than two nuclear plants.
Are we witnessing another LOBA? [ “Loss of Bulls**t Accident” ]. This makes me think of the old bumper sticker: “Solar’s all right, but nukes do it all night.”
Wind is just another form of solar energy, and wind tends to fall off substantially at night.
As Bob Dylan once sang [ from a contrarians point of view]: “The problem my friend is blowing in the wind.” Ah, Schadenfreude [ ask Franz for an explanation, or google it] --it’s an underrated human pleasure.
