Just like an ice-cream on a hot day, the statements of Maitland Mackie (August 26) regarding wind power melt in the warmth of truth.
As I write, the 3500 UK wind turbines are producing 245 Megawatts ( 0.6%) of UK power production. It was slightly better in the last 24 hours at 0.8%. These figures are nothing unusual.
It is evident, therefore, that wind does not produce viable amounts of predictable and dependable electricity.
Furthermore, data from Denmark, where wind power has been more greatly invested in, indicates that there are no savings in carbon dioxide production that is allegedly causing global warming.
In any case, Scotland only produces 0.2% of world manmade carbon dioxide.
So we are investing in a power production system, at great financial and environmental cost, that does not produce worthwhile amounts of power and does not reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
So perhaps Maitland Mackie can tell us the real reason why?
