Richard Littlejohn, writing about the many 'green' power-generating wind turbines deployed in England, points out:
Over the past three weeks, with demand for power at record levels because of the freezing weather, there have been days when the contribution of our forests of wind turbines has been precisely nothing.
It gets better. As the temperature has plummeted, the turbines have had to be heated to prevent them seizing up. Consequently, they have been consuming more electricity than they generate.
Let's hear it for 'green' - NOT!
