Wind 7.58%, 4 – 22 mph, Wales 6 – 10 mph, 0736 local time

The wind speed in the Betws area is now 8 mph, so the giant turbines are producing nothing at all, because it takes 9 mph to start them. This will be the case now until next autumn ( The turbines on Mynydd y Gwair, if forced through against ferocious disgust and opposition, are lower down and smaller, so they will be totally useless. As people begin to see the awful damage to Mynydd y Gwair they might wake up as to what has been done to them by aristocratic greed and corruption, combined with mindless pseudoscience. Solar is a useless 1.07% and hydro an abysmal 0.81%. Hydro should have been close to 100% fifty years ago, using tidal turbines. Nuclear and imported gas are flat out. A general election will not make any difference to this fiasco, so sooner or later there will be power cuts and power rationing. The only answer is an immediate programme of building tidal lagoons, ES and LENR power stations, and scrapping wind turbines. The only other country in the world with a thirty foot tide is Canada (Halifax, Novia Scotia) so there is a free gift of tens of gigawatts of power four five miles from here. There is a thirty foot tide all along the Bristol Channel as is well known.
