I know harry has run up a fair tab with me here for his solar FIT
theft thing, you know, how much I've paid him compared with how much
electricity he's allowed out onto the grid (for any of us).
I wonder if he was an only child as they can often have difficulty
with the concept of sharing and 'playing fair'? ;-(

Yes winds at the moment are very low indeed. The thing is without efficient
power storage, wind is always going to be inconveniently producing when we
don't want it and not when we do. Probably much the same can be said of
solar as well.
Its about time the genetisists got the plant based electricity generation
system up and running, no shortage of weeds here whether its sunny windy
quiet or raining!
This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from...
And I think (and more to the point) that no one is trying to promote
coal (especially these days) as anything other than 'a solution', that
whist may not be 'green' (whatever that really means etc), *is* (or
has been) fairly predictable in how it can be used to generate
Consuming huge amounts of energy and producing huge amounts of
pollution to create an energy solution that is *never* dependable
really does seem like a step backwards.
Now, if someone is able to predict a world wide electricity grid where
interconnected alternative (as non of them are ever really green)
energy supplies can actually and reliably power the entire worlds
energy needs and when there are no other (and greener) alternatives
then I don't think we should be expending such energy in the first
But we all know it's little to do with energy but politics and a
minority of people parasiting the majority (harry), simply to line
their own pockets.

Too bad it can't produce this 7 x 24 x 365 then, isn't it. What started
this thread was my reporting that wind was producing fuck all (250MW or
so) which it did for three days solid.
Actually it's worse than that: I'm told we now have 14GW of wind
capacity (BICBW), so it's still not very good.
Meanwhile reliable old nuclear goes on shoving out 8GW 7 x 24 x 365,
come rain or shine (or neither).

Like or dislike wind and other green-ish energy sources, data about them
is always useful, I hadn't noticed this one before, it's not a source of
live data, but cleanly presented version of data from elsewhere
