Earlier in the year he laid into the owner of a firm of wind farm generators, telling him wind power was a ‘fairytale’.
But, the presenter points out that their wind power development has leveled out for the last year.
It takes energy to make energy, and solar or wind power can make recovering fossil fuels less harmful to the environment.
This would mitigate the negative wildlife consequences of wind power in a way that should result in no net loss of birds.
Coal is on the way out for many power plants, and natural gas, solar, and wind power are being phased in.
In Denmark, the poster child for wind power, neither carbon dioxide emissions nor hydrocarbon consumption have been reduced.
Because wind power proved rather uncertain farmers adopted the gasoline engine, usually a two horsepower engine.
The advent of steam caused a cessation in the progress of wind power, and it was comparatively neglected for many years.
wind power is too uncertain to depend upon, and we turned our backs upon water-power when we began to crowd into cities.
Electricity may be generated by water or wind power to great advantage, and conveyed to a distance for motive power.
