- Did you say a bottle of Jura…………damn good stuff
- Why don’t we focus this discussion on energy reduction instead. How about we cut down our energy needs by 50% by the year 2022. What is about to evolve in the next 10 years is a new tax system to penalize energy abusers and I am all for it. I live in a community where no cars are required. I have everything I need within walking distance. This is the community of the future.
What thou sayest Dr. McKenzie ?
- Malcom………reactors can and will blow up when the conditions are right. You are good at playing with words. Your historical knowledge about nuclear accidents is pitiful.
Anyway, we were discussing “windmills”.
- OK Malcolm
- I am very surprised that Dr. McKenzie is not advocating energy use reductions more strongly. Reductions in the use of energy won’t be an easy pill to swallow. How we use energy and all the ramifications connected with said reductions is going to be an extremely complex exercise and will take years of adaptation. The social implications will be enornous. Wind farms and tidal power may have a place in this process in the initial stages but those applications will be very limited.
I think that some of you are not totally understanding the environmental issues we are facing. I cringe at the comments some of you make.

You Scots owe it to yourselves to vote “yes” for independence. Am I to think that there aren’t enough brains in Scotland to implement a Constitution and a political system ? I hope that independence will come for Scotland. Minor revisions to the one you now have. It’s been a dream for many. And when it does happen “Proud England’s Army, can be sent home to think again”. You will be able to set up your first parliament at Balmoral !!!!!

Dunoon receives 2400mm of rain per year. This may have something to do with the loss of tourism dollars. Today’s tourists look for sunny places to spend time & money.

Is there such a “thing” as an “appropriately sited wind farm” ?
