UK Relying On Europe For A Fifth Of Its Power

UK theoretical ‘windmill’ capacity = 24GW, but is running at less than 2GW.

Windmills are your enemy, not the fossil fuel tech that happens to create and sustain, symbolic UNreliables.

The real enemy of ‘sustainability’, is symbolism itself.

Are there any grown ups in charge of our energy policy?
