    The R.

    I agree with this wind power is really expensive, stupid and creates more CO2 then it saves.

    Weak politicians trying to get the 'Green vote' even gas is better.

    The true, tragic cost of British wind power

    There are certainly problems with wind, and the fanaticism of supporters is unhelpful, as is the article, which is rather short on explanation.

    If in the extremely unlikely event that Phil's device doesn't produce loads of power when it is built correctly, then we should build modern nuclear plants that are fail safe and efficient and can 'burn up' most of there nuclear waste.
    This is surely the way to go?
    Thorium and travelling wave have enough proven resources to last mankind for hundreds of years.

    What's the matter with natural uranium? We already have a widely deployed system that uses unenriched uranium fuel. You can buy it off the shelf.

    Well my two help get rid of nuclear waste, although TW would use Uranium anyway.

    There are several inherently safe nuclear technologies. Unfortunately, because of 60 years of pushing BS "atoms for peace" as cover for a civilian arm of the military industrial complex, the public is very wary of anything that nuclear in its name. Safe approaches to nuclear power really make more technical and economic sense than almost anything else anyone has proposed.

    The solution is simple and staring everyone in the face. You take 1/3 of the wind generators and reverse the current so they become big fans. You point them at the other wind generators and simply close the loop. Then you can use half the power you generate to run the fans and use the other half.... to run Steorn's Orbos.

    Perhaps Bob Dylan could write a song about it.

    Every windmill has at least six really big ones. I wonder if they are the disturbed or undisturbed kind.

    Properly fixed.
