The Greens global campaign against fracking continues unabated with this latest flimsy story from the keyboard of Green junk journalist Suzanne Goldenberg at the Guardian where a very small town in Texas has apparently run out of water.

In the recent very cold winter in Britain the wind farms actually consumed more energy than they produced, while in Canada a $200 million dollar wind farm was frozen solid for weeks.
In the United States Texas is in the grip of a heat wave which has set record demands for electricity and as usual the wind farms have failed spectacularly: Read the rest of this entry
