OK, so there’s ths paper come out about the actual effects of having lots of windpower on the UK grid. Yes, I’ve read the paper and yes, this article gives a fair enough summary.
Now, could someone who really understands the science here (and preferably someone who supports the installation of wind power, if there actually be any people who are both) please explain something to me.
Why in buggery are we going ahead with wind? It doesn’t seem to solve any problems at great cost.
It’s even (in theory at least) possible that it will raise carbon emissions.
