7.  It’s NOT the platform he was elected on

Johnson speaks:

As Saudi Arabia is to oil, the UK is to wind: a place of almost limitless resource, but, in the case of wind, without the carbon emissions, without the damage to the environment.

And in ten years’ time offshore wind will be powering every home in the country, with our target rising from 30 gigawatts to 40 gigawatts. You heard me right.

Your kettle, your washing machine, your cooker, your heating, your plug-in electric vehicle, the whole lot of them will get their juice cleanly and without guilt from the breezes that blow around these islands.’ – Boris Johnson, October 6, 2020

THE Prime Minister’s latest obeisance to the wind energy cult prompted me to make a short film (which follows with a transcript below) to show why it is – and there are no other words – simply mad; why none of his hubristic claims have any grounding in truth or reality; what a terrible deception being practised on the British people, how terrible the costs and consequences to them will be if he is allowed to pursue this frankly insane agenda.

5.  Yes and no

But if the Left focuses on ‘what could be,’ the Right focuses on ‘what is.’ If the Left operates where people ‘could be,’ the Right operates where people ‘are’ or at least, where they believe themselves to be. The Right does not aim to change human social reality but rather to celebrate, and to even maximize it.

1.  Is this a go-er?

The underlying reason that I believe electric aircraft can break the sound barrier is that electric motors can deliver far higher power-to-weight ratios than piston engines, jets, or turbines.

Discuss if you could be bothered. Now this one must be good:

  1. 7. Is the source for this wind power to be provided by turbines blotting the seascapes around the coasts of “these islands” by any chance?

    The Crown owns the area between the low and high water marks so will be the benefactor not us nor the environment because despite what the Windbag Blancmange tells us the turbines are not “green”. It is yet another scam filling the coffers of the few at the expense of the many.

  2. I like the idea of electric supersonic planes, I’m sure electric propulsion units are more efficient. I only have one question: Given that batteries would be much too heavy where would they get a long enough extension cable to keep it plugged in throughout the flight, and wouldn’t the cable get caught up on high buildings?

    • I can imagine the news reports now – “Flight 101 went down just off the coast. The cause has not yet been established, but some are speculating that a secretary pulled the plug from the wall socket to use her phone charger, and others are saying that someone forgot to put 50p in the meter. Boris Johnson stated that lessons will be learned before going off to hug a tree. The pilot, who was the only survivor, said that when he gets back to work he’s going to ‘kill that bitch’.”
