Prince Philip Wind Farms Are Absolutely Useless And A Disgrace

Prince Philip Windfarms are completely reliant on subsidies and would never work

Prince Philip joined the outcry at the weekend about the economic insanity of wind farms and how wind power will never work without huge tax payer subsidies,  and raised again the major flaw in the whole renewables industry, wind farms require 100% backup capacity from conventional power stations for those days when it is too cold or the wind speed is too fast, then of course there are the days when the wind farm operators are paid millions of pounds to not generate electricity.

Prince Philip’s views on wind farms put him at complete odds with the elephant eared moron, who masquerades at the heir to the throne, who in February this year was demanding that anyone who does not buy into the man made Global Warming scam must be held accountable

Esbjorn Wilmar, managing director of Infinergy who are currently sucking  up millions in tax payer subsidies to build off shore wind farms was treated to the truth about his industry in the style that only Phil the Greek can do:

In a scathing attack, the Duke of Edinburgh said the turbines were ‘completely reliant on subsidies’ and ‘would never work’.

His comments are a rebuke to the Government, which is trying to increase the amount of energy generated by wind farms and other renewable technologies.

Last night Lord Lawson said the Duke was ‘spot on’ and speaking on behalf of ordinary people in fuel poverty.

Philip made the remarks to Esbjorn Wilmar, managing director of Infinergy, which is building offshore turbines around Britain.

Mr Wilmar said he introduced himself to the 90-year-old Duke at a reception and suggested he put wind turbines on royal property.

‘He said that they were absolutely useless, completely reliant on subsidies and an absolute disgrace. I was surprised by his very frank views,’ he said.

When Mr Wilmar tried to argue that onshore turbines are one of the most cost-effective forms of renewable energy, the Duke apparently replied: ‘You don’t believe in fairy tales do you?’

Mr Wilmar added: ‘He said they would never work as they need back-up capacity.’

And the Duke apparently told him: ‘In a scathing attack, the Duke of Edinburgh said the turbines were ‘completely reliant on subsidies’ and ‘would never work’.

And the Duke apparently told him: ‘You stay away from my estate young man.’.’

You stay away from my estate young man” does conjure up the view of Prince Philip dressed in full naval uniform prowling the royal estates clutching a traditional English side by side 12 bore shotgun and keeping watch should anyone try and build a bird chopper on his land.

Yesterday Lord Lawson, a former Tory Chancellor and leading climate change sceptic, said: ‘[The Duke] is spot on. He rightly feels strongly about the issue and equally clearly knows what he is talking about.

‘If you tried to devise the most costly and inefficient means of generating electricity imaginable, you would choose wind power – which is also an environmental monstrosity, desecrating ever more of our English landscape.

‘And the cost of all this – to no benefit except to the wind power industry itself – is paid by all electricity consumers, including the poorest, and damages the British economy which is fragile enough as it is.’

Glyn Davies, Tory MP for Montgomeryshire, which has seen huge protests against wind farms in the area, added: ‘[The Duke] speaks for a large section of the population.

‘The industry is not just being subsidised but is making a big contribution to the increase in fuel poverty and reducing the competitiveness of British industry. We need to look at other technologies, such as solar and nuclear power, not put all our eggs in the wind farm basket which is sacrificing beautiful countryside at the altar of a false god.’

The major propaganda outlet for Climate Religion, the UN IPCC have backed away from CO2 increasing global temperatures so there is no reasonable or sensible excuse for carrying on with Climate Religion which is all that is left, since the scientists who started the whole scam are now testing the exit doors.

  1. Gud on you Phil, environmental protection is one thing, but filling the coffers of clean energy suppliers and manufacturers, is a rort.

  2. are you going to quote Lord (not a lord) Mockton next?

  3. I’m waiting for Lord Christopher Monckton to speak on the Cop 17 Durban conference?
    By the way he is a peer Spector567, and is a Viscount. But can’t vote in the House of Lords
    simple as that. You can’t take away a person’s title. If I met him, being English by birth, I would address him, ‘Lord Christopher’ he might say ‘Sir’ is adequate or drop the formality all together. But Mr Monckton might be OK with him, or actually Chris would be rude and familiar, as it would with anyone who holds any rank be it a bishop, judge, or PM.
    But as a foreigner I don’t expect you to understand that, and that you don’t require to address him the same. Just don’t try it in UK or you might be castigated as being bad mannered and disrespectful. Or a republican.

  4. O/T Guess what, I was at a BBQ last week, and two people there admitted that they had borrowed to get solar panels to two of their homes. One cost $26,000 dollars and the smaller one $12,000. They so far that year had got back $1200 for the two set ups.
    Do your sums folks? Add the interest on the loans and then work out if solar is worth it?
    Same with windmills. Why should you and me, subsidize those who can afford this. Mind you they don’t last forever either. Only have a five year guarantee with them.
