The CBI have claimed the government's energy policy is too wind focused.
Hopefully someone can point out to these cunts the futility of wind power. I can quite confidently say wind power is the biggest fucking waste of time and it irritates me that the government are even considering it. Yeah, yeah, I know the twats in Brussels dictate that a certain percentage of our energy has to come from renewables, but we'd be better off employing entire estates of chavs to cycle on excercise bikes connected to alternators than using wind power. (Not a bad idea, in fairness)
Wind turbines might look nice, but they are incredibly expensive to install in the first place, incredibly expensive to maintain, only generates power some of the time (when it's windy) and give utterly piss-poor value for money in the amount of energy that they generate. Still, since when has value for money ever been the slightest consideration for environmentalists? The sole consideration they have is "carbon footprint" and any other considerations as far as cost, actual effectiveness, etc can be damned. These poeple need a fucking carbon footprint to the face. Wind power is fine for installing on a remote farm in the middle of nowhere (although they can whistle for running a kettle, iron, microwave, oven etc off it) but no good for actually making a dint in meeting the UK's power needs. The government is going to piss away millions, possibly billions on wind power and it'll all be a complete waste of time as they realise they can't do enough.
The answer has been, is, and always will be nuclear power. Unfortunately, the French don't have much time for environmentalists totally misguided handwringing about nuclear, which means that they're world leaders in the manufacturer of nuclear facilities and we've missed the boat. We even buy electricity into the national grid from the French, and guess how they generate it? Fucking nuclear. Once they crack nuclear fusion then the idea of using any other form of power generation is frankly barmy.
The environmentalists need to actually EDUCATE themselves about the power options available to them. If, as soon as someone mentions nuclear power to you, you start bleating about Chernobyl, then you're a fucking idiot. Chernobyl happened because it was built using shitty Communist Russian parts, monitored using shitty Communist Russian gauges, and maintained and ran by shitty Communist Russians. They had no idea how to use the equipment, how to monitor it, and how to recover problems. You play with fire, you get burnt. The French on the other hand know what they're doing, so their nuclear power stations won't blow up. Nuclear waste disposal is no longer a problem because so many other countries don't have the problem of fucking environmentalists shouting down anybody who even wants to discuss nuclear power, and they've gone ahead and built the power stations.
This is the problem, the anti-nuclear lobby in this country, who are universally cunts, will shout down anyone who even dares to mention "nuclear". They won't even have a fucking debate on it. They're ill-informed about the risks and the benefits, and have prevented progress and allowed the French to become world leaders when it so easily could have been us.
