Fracked – II

The rising cost of imported gas has led our electricity companies to switch back to coal, which in the past two weeks has been contributing up to 40 per cent or more of our power. More than once, however, the contribution from all our 3,500 wind turbines put together has been as little as 0.2 per cent, with coal-fired power stations contributing 200 times as much. christopher booker, telegraph

As Booker points out, in the US fracking is creating a glut of gas and will soon create an equal glut of oil…In England, fracking is seen as, somehow, the work of the devil.

The poor Brits are going to rely on wind. They’re screwed.
