Tasmania’s Pathetic Wind Power Push: Plug Gets Pulled on Plans for All RE Future

STOP THESE THINGS

These days, it’s almost impossible for wind power promoters to finish a sentence without reference to batteries or pumped hydro.

In the beginning, when the wind industry said ‘let there be light’, they meant only occasionally, and only when the wind was blowing, just right.

Now that the average punter has worked out that the only guarantee delivered by wind power, is guaranteed chaos, those still in on the rort are bound to start waffling about storing all that wonderful ‘green’ energy; lovingly caressed from nature’s bounteous breezes (albeit at times when there is no market for it), to be gently guided back into the grid when there might actually be a demand for it.
