Things have reached a pretty pass when France has to rescue Britons from the mess their moonbattery has gotten them into.
Scotland’s wind farms are unable to cope with the freezing weather conditions — grinding to a halt at a time when electricity demand is at a peak, forcing the country to rely on power generated by French nuclear plants.
Output from major wind farms fell to as low as 2.5 per cent of their potential generation capacity during the cold snap as power demand rose to close to the highest level yet recorded, new figures have revealed.
Meteorologists say extremely cold temperatures can occur only when there is little or no wind and icy pockets of air are trapped close to the ground, prompting accusations from anti- wind-farm campaigners that wind power cannot be relied on to meet Scotland’s electricity needs in the depths of winter.
We all know wind energy doesn’t work, so why not end the ridiculous fad right now, and save ourselves a fortune in government subsidies? Yet moonbat bureauweenies hold firm to their foolishness:
The Scottish Government is opposed to nuclear power, insisting no nuclear plants will be built in Scotland once Hunterston B in Ayrshire and Torness in East Lothian are decommissioned, in 2016 and 2023 respectively.
Shivering in the dark so that pompous liberal blowhards can posture sanctimoniously — that’s our future unless enviromoonbattery is turned back decisively.
