I am by no means up to speed on the truth about the effectiveness of windfarms in reducing CO2 emissions, though I know one of the most obvious downsides….that you need another ‘always-on’ source of generation as a back up….as such any information that sheds light on the subject would be welcome..Just don’t rely on the BBC to provide it.
This is an interesting tale from Colonel Blimp in the comments concerning Roger Harrabin’s decision not to publish research that indicates wind farms produce no savings at all in CO2 emissions…and if so the whole exercise is an entirely pointless exercise in spending large amounts of money on the usual Labour inspired white elephants.
Blink and you might have missed UKIP’s conference but this must have been one of the more interesting statements made at it…and yet ignored by the BBC.
Harrabin says there just isn’t space to mention such research…..yes, I suppose the BBC website just can’t cope with a few extra lines….perhaps it could remove one of the stories about UFO’s that’s on there now?
Balance is one thing, deliberately hiding evidence or research that inconveniently sheds doubt on the ‘consensus’ is another.
