Yes, but today you only get to learn them at snotty unis.
Its called 'Progress and equality in educayshun'
The basic idea is to wreck teh snotty unis and teh grammare schools to
appeas teh Laber Votahs who think that not being stupid is some kind of
Whilst most of the Laber MP's send their kids to private schools (on tax
payers money)a nd went to them themselves, or at least snotty grammar
schools, before going free to univesrity (on taxpayers money).
Its normal 'animal farm' stuff. Everybody is equally miserable, stupid
and badly educated, except for the Party Elite, who simply become teh
new aristocracy, just like in the Soviet Union.
One wouldn't mind, except they are so BAD at it.
CHP has its place in the right environment. But there are lots of
Though at the moment the emphasis seems to be entirely on installing
windmills and not on commissioning or operating them. The ones visible
along the A19 seem to be permanently feathered and non rotating. And
even if they were operating the wind doesn't blow continuously so you
still need backup conventional power stations for the cold windless
But at least wind generation has more prospect of being useful than
solar power at our latitude and with the UK's cloudy maritime climate.
Lashings of hot water on the few sunny days in mid summer, and horrid
technical problems in mid winter trying to keep the system from
It is pretty hard to find applications where even the latest PV cells
are truly cost effective. You have to be a long way from any mains power
before their cost per watt justifies using them.
Solar power works reasonably at latitudes below about 45 degrees, but it
is quite frankly a complete non-starter at latitudes 55N and above.
Unless you count biomass conversion in forests for indirect fuel
??? What have Nimbies to do with it? see:
This is a boiler that generates electricity from waste heat.
Not so. Solar in the UK is very feasible. In fact because they have a long
heating season, solar in Scotland has great advantages.
The idea is to reduce energy consumption at source and then power generation
is not so important.
What are you on about?
Superinsulation, passive solar house design, DHW solar panels on the roof,
CHP boilers (nearly here), all reduce power consumption greatly. You can
forget PV cells. Even so, if the take up of PV cell was all over then the
manufacturing costs would tumble, making them highly cost effective.
Nonsense!!! Absolute Nonsense!!! St, George's School in Wallasey was built
in 1961 and was full solar and worked wonderfully. With modern materials
and controls, a school built to solar would be even better and far more
Have the whole south facing roof of a house an integrated solar panel and it
generates masses of heat. In winter it will not be too hot, so it is best
to use low temperature under floor heating in the house. The heated water
can be in a very large thermal store to cope with 3 cloudy days. The DHW
section may need topping up with backup heating in deep winter. All

Fusion power is going to turn out to be a great deal filthier than fission
Fission power is the cleanest and least polluting energy source ever
produced on earth.
The number of deaths per kilowatt hour which occur in the extraction and
processing of fossil fuels is a lot higher than the corresponding number
for the extraction of uranium
The pollution of the atmosphere by fossil fuel stations is vastly worse than
the pollution caused by nuclear power stations.
The radioactive contamination by a nuclear station is negligible, despite
the protestations of the anti-nuclear lobby. And even that contamination is
largely caused by irresponsible practices.
As is the case with flying machines.
There have been many more deaths due to aeroplane crashes than due to the 3
Mile Island accident.
Chernobyl does not count. That was as close as one can get to wilful
But for how long will they last, and for how long can we tolerate their
insidious effects on the atmosphere?
I will venture a guess that many more people all over the world are this
moment dying from side effects of these lower tech alternatives than from
anything ascribable to nuclear power plants.
