If this was 1st April, I would have expected it. But 24th November?

I just took that test.

Jesus, how irritating.

Spectacular own goal which is a shame as it's a very important issue and deserves to be focussed on.

Resource Consumer

Yes - nearly as much an own goal as

(a) installing a wind turbine with as much electrical output as a hairdryer

(b) cycling to work but have a car deliver his suit to him there

Are you trying to say he's not seriously serious about his policies...!?:eek:

But he looks so honest...

I would be interested in finding out what the energy costs of manufacturing/delivering/installing/maintaining home wind turbines is.

I have seen some studies on it.. it takes quite a bit to make it worth it.

But they are still worthwhile in the end...

Not my first choice at all!

Funko

Always? If they wear out fairly fast they could very possibly not recover the energy used to produce them.

Certainly financially they are very expensive for very little saving, and domestic energy use is very small compared to industrial.

MOBIUS

Well if they make them very reliable, that would mitigate wear and tear costs.

I think they're crap. A blight on the landscape that was a calculated plan by Blair to throw his hands up and say we need to go Nuclear...

There are far better renewables out there than wind.

The big ones are awesome. I love big wind farms.

not if you lived next to them - noisy as fuck they are

Funko

That's why they put them in the countryside. No-one lives there.

orrr small ones driven by farts

Like in Reading.

Funko

The reading one is brilliantly brilliant, but no-one lives there, it's an industrial park, and it's not very noisy.

It's certainly a lot quieter than the M4 or the Reading Relief Road that it's next to.

The Reading Relief Road? Let me guess, a bunch of wankers live near it? :D

I didn't think Chiswick had many wind turbines? :D

I do wish they'd get a move on and discover fusion power. Or antimatter derived power sources...I'd be happy with either :cute:

I agree!

I want to see more like that one, and less blighting the hills etc.

I'm confused. So should I buy a dutch windmill using my credit card?

Resource Consumer

buy a dutch cap first and see if it fits :)
