I thought a handy illustration of a few facts about Wind Turbines and Wind Energy might be helpful.
(Higher res version for printing here)
Especially as there has been a bit of a Twitter storm over Matt Ridley’s superb piece in The Spectator on Wind Energy, see at his blog here.
Mark Lynas claimed that the article had no facts in it. Mark then asked for references, which Matt duly provided (all in the blog article). Mark either didn’t like the references or is still busy reading them. We are still waiting for an apology from Mark for his completely unfounded Tweet.
Could be any time soon…
