The True Cost of Climate Change Folly

The incredible cost of the UK's foray into green power is the subject of Christopher Booker's new article. Over 200 billion dollars is to go into off-shore wind farms which will produce very little power when it is needed most as has been the experience in the current deep freeze. The amount of money being wasted is simply mind-boggling. If the same money was put into nuclear power the UK would have roughly17 to 20 gigawatts of reliable base load power with a fraction of the running costs of wind power and it would be available in horrific winter conditions. The loonies are in charge of the asylum!
