A Letter To Chris Huhne Re Wind Turbines
Posted by Tory Aardvark
Dear Mr Huhne
As Environment Secretary you must surely be aware of the study that shows over the last 30 years wind speeds across Western Europe have dropped on average 12.5%, yet in the face of this evidence you are still willing to gamble our energy security and invest in a source of power that is very expensive and requires 100% back up for the increasingly frequent days when there is no wind.
Then Mr Huhne, you propagate lies about all the Green Jobs that will be created when the whole landscape from horizon to horizon is full of rotating blades, recently you cited Thanet as the way forward bringing lots of new jobs in new industries. Thanet will create just 21 jobs at average cost of £3,000,000 per job per year, the 400,000 jobs you quote would require 17 times the total output of Great Britain plc to fund. Please explain the maths behind your figures, because at the moment it looks like Michael Mann and Phil Jones are helping you with the sums.
Having just recently returned from The Netherlands where they hide their wind turbines in the industrial landscapes, the only wind mills to be seen in the landscape are the real Dutch windmills, why are we in Britain ruining beautiful natural views with these concrete monstrosities? Interestingly enough in the drive from Utrecht to Dunkirk the first bird choppers you see on the horizon are in Belgium where Climate Religion is deeply entrenched with eco mentalist ideas like vegetarian Fridays.
The whole country is bracing itself for stringent cuts and we need value for money and affordable energy, to pursue wind energy that is 1300% more expensive than nuclear in these troubled times smacks more of Religion and a political aversion to nuclear energy, than a level headed cost effective energy solution.
An early reply would be gratefully received but with the forthcoming COP16 Hooker and Cocaine fest at Cancun you are probably very busy chartering your private jet and limo.
