Wind 1.57%, 0 – 18 mph, Wales 2 – 6 mph, 0703 local time

Wind has collapsed to a pitiful 1.57%, the wind in the Betws area now is 6 mph, not enough to start the giant turbines, which are essentially useless all year round as this blog shows very clearly. No power at all is being produced by giant wind turbines throughout Wales now because the wind speed is 2 – 6 mph and it takes 9 mph to start them. As sometime Plaid Cymru advisor from Cornell University, and informal advisor for fifteen years to governments worldwide which consult I advocate immediate demolition of all wind turbines in Wales to stabilize the grid, an environmental clean up and immediate construction of tidal turbines in the Bristol Channel. Four miles away from here there is a thirty foot tide, a free gift of enough power for all three countries of Britain and with enough for export. We used to export steam coal from this village of Craig Cefn Parc. Solar is a negligible 1.39% despite the fact that there has been sunny weather for a few days. So I advocate removal of all solar panels from Mawr, leaving only domestic solar panels. Hydro is a ridiculous 0.22%. Tidal hydro should be generating close to 100% of demand, with ES and LENR being built as quickly as possible. So government at all levels in Britain is incompetent, falling way behind the world in the production of hydroelectricity. My inference is that hydro is so pitifully low because the dry weather has reduced water levels and pressure in rivers and so on. Tidal turbines work in any weather because they are driven by the sea. Playing around with general elections for self seekers makes no difference. Self seeking politicians must be given my ancestor Cromwell’s shock treatment of 1653, when the New Model Army removed incompetent politicians: “You have sat here too long for all the good you have done, begone I say, in the name of God go”. The Lord Protector would be The People, governing by frequent electronic referenda on every major issue, not by a ridiculous first past the post on a turn out difficult to count with an electron microscope. People get elected by as low as about 10% of those entitled to vote, then they sit there overlong.
