Windpower: it won't work

Trixy was a wee bit cold and grumpy yesterday and having a chat with one of her pals. It was noted that during this rather fucking cold snap, with no wind, it was just as well we weren't entirely reliant on wind power as, during the peak energy demand, there would be negligible supply.

Well, one of Trixy's pals decided he was going to take a film to demonstrate this point.

Do pass it on, particularly to your friends and neighbours who vote Labour, Lib Dem, Tory and Green because they're all in favour of these binding EU targets on renewable energy.

15% by 2020 the EU have dictated, and yet in 2005 the amount of energy the UK produced through renewable energy was 1.3%.

Bet go buy that jumper.

The windmills aren't turning on cold days because they are actually cooling fans to prevent global warming. Imagine how hot Summer would be without all those propellers whizzing round.
