Wind 8.07%, 1 – 21 mph, Wales 2 – 12 mph, 0722 local time

The wind speed in the Betws area now is 7 mph, so the useless wind turbines are generating no power because they need 9 mph to start. They produce no power about 90% of the time, so were thrown up for subsidies by a corrupt cabal which knew that they would produce no power. Mynydd y Gwair is being torn to shreds now as the corruption spreads like a plague. With government like this who needs a nuclear war? Solar is negligible at 0.86% and hydro is negligible at 1.04%. As usual most of the grid demand is met by nuclear and gas. The Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Mainz estimates that in fifty years’ time the entire surface area of Europe will be radiaoactive due to leakage from nuclear power stations. It will take a century to decommission Trawsfynydd at the cost of fifty million pounds a year. It should be capped and buried immediately under millions of tons of anti radiation material. Gas produces methane during drilling, and that traps eighty times more heat than carbon dioxide. It is easily possible to generate the entire grid demand by tidal turbines. So the government is grossly incompetent and out of touch with reality. Note that the contribution of wind to the grid now, 8.07%, is only a contribution to electric power. Total demand (electricity plus fuel) is far greater, so wind turbines effectively generate zero percent of total demand.
