Not enough electricity to power green cars  

Credit:  Wales Online | 10 Sep 2018 | www.walesonline.co.uk ~~

The ITV documentary ‘What car should I buy?’ unashamedly supported electric-powered cars in the UK. Yet there was no mention of the most important fundamental flaw involving electric cars. The electricity will not exist to power them! That is a fact!

Just check the National Grid web-site www.gridwatch.templar.co.uk for proof. At 9.14am on September 6 thousands of UK wind turbines were generating a pathetic 900 megawatts, or 2.58 per cent of UK usage. Under the glorious anticyclonic high pressure weather which sat over the UK from around May 1st to July 31, there was regularly even less wind.

The Government is committed to closing coal-fired power stations and reducing other fossil fuel electricity generation in favour of wind energy.

If the wind frequently produces less than 2 per cent of the electricity needed for our homes, factories, offices and hospitals… how on earth can it power 20 million cars as well?

Will Michael Gove and wind energy specialists please reply to that? Before they say that there is giant battery back-up for non-windy days, readers should know that it is provided by diesel or gas-powered units. Wind power as green energy? What a farce!

Google ‘Green Frog’ to find out more. Large electricity battery units are receiving millions of pounds of tax-payers’ money to be on constant ‘stand-by’. Yet they produce miniscule amounts of electricity when called upon.

For goodness sake, do the maths. Non-technical, innumerate, vote-catching politicians are leading UK citizens up a gum tree.

If wind energy can power the UK, why are there no sails on the Queen Mary 2… or even the Fishguard ferry?
