This is the problem

This is the problem with wind energy. 

Current wind forecast out-turn from shows the huge loss of power we must expect each time the wind drops. As you can see, the current situation is that we shall soon be producing almost no wind energy in the UK. 

Time to switch off - or maybe one day it will be done for us.

Perhaps we should nationalise the electric companies and resurrect the CEGB. You might remember them - solid folk with solid experience who knew one end of a boiler from t'other. Run by a min of power who knew most of the steel and cable would be made in our own backyard and the boilers would be planted on top of our own coal mines.

While the boilers still function perhaps we should stoke them with the entire parliamentary crew and the mandarins and hope they don't choke the flues! Their replacement? Hire only those who have horny hands and/or numerate degrees. Nice boys and girls with PPE or Meeja experience can go to the back of the queue for about 50 years.

Roger - that's good. Mind if I put it up as a guest post? I'd probably put up the same graph with a title something like "This is the solution".

Perhaps the word 'solution' is a bit unfortunate, perhaps Time for a Change, something like that, otherwise go ahead.

My main beef is not so much with PPE and Public Relations types per se, but I reckon we have had too much of it, time for more solid fare - by about 2062 we should then be ready for a more amusing diet.
