Still no comment on a fellow Scots nightmare …

Comment posted on Caithness wind farm rejection by Malcolm Kirk

Still no comment on a fellow Scots nightmare as illustrated on the Druim Ba video – interesting !

  • I leave our loyal followers to extract anything worthwhile from all the above. I’m off to watch England beat Sweden.
    PS – what we really need is someone to start a new topic – what about school meals
  • Robert you’re indeed the ultimate ‘luminary’. There was a programme on telly just last week featuring Thames Barges – the programme makers got stuck for several days with ‘nay wind’. The camera boat was OK it was diesel powered.
    Incidentally somewhere above you claimed that we would not go into a situation to ‘help others’. You posted that on the day the remembrance service from the Falkland Islands was filling our television screens – explain!
    The Doc’s ‘holier than thou’ sermons are so boring and long winded, but I think he is in the renewables industry, so he is only defending his corner.
    Thought for the day – a neighbours house had solar panels installed last week – perfectly legal, etc. A baby born last week will go through all the stages of growing up, with all that entails. Certainly for most of us the late teens and through the twenties were the most difficult when it came to earning enough and paying all the bills. The baby born last week, going into its 25th year on this planet, will still be paying as part of his/her utilities bill for the subsidy allocated to my neighbour’s solar panels last week. As I understand it at the moment the factory gate price for one KWh of electricity as supplied from normal Power Stations is about 2.5p. The price of one KWh from solar panels is 43p – index linked – and guaranteed for those 25 years.
  • A slightly modified version of the animated graph video:
  • I hate to say this – but where is the proof that ‘ we must reduce our thirst for energy’. In my lifetime, since the 50s the atmosphere has never been cleaner. We used to have smokestacks belching out all sorts of nasties into the air we breathed – there are illustrations from centuries back showing chimney upon chimney polluting our streets, never mind whole cities.It may be that we can clean the air we breathe even further and I’m all for that, but why the doomsday scenario – its not fact. The atmosphere has warmed about 0.7 of one degree over the last several decades – this has happened before and in a few thousand years will probably happen again. OK – an atoll 1 metre above present sea level may disappear but eventually that atoll may very well reappear 2 metres above sea level. We can’t control these things – well actually we can. A thousand years ago a threatened island would have died along with its population – nowadays we would go in there with millions of pounds (actually probably US dollars)worth of equipment and ‘rescue’ them and give them a lovely home somewhere else – sorted !

    OOpps almost forgot – the new video

  • Glasgow ? Glasgow ? There’s nothing in the video of Glasgow – There’s the Scott Monument in Edinburgh, the Kessock Bridge at Inverness ,oh, do you think Trafalgar Square is in Glasgow ? You also avoided the serious mind bending noise problem evident in the vid. Those wonderful feats of engineering you mention have one thing in common – they are all there for our use 24 hours a day and therefore justify their cost – electricity from wind farms is inefficient,unreliable,intermittent and hugely expensive for consumers, whilst giving huge profits to the few. And not one Power Station can be, or ever will be, closed down because of them.

    Seemingly can’t annoy anybody enough to contradict / argue / comment – so that’s me gone !

    Morning all ! As nothing else of interest is happening I’ll just mention something from yesterday which convinces me that the BBC is a real and threatening Political Party. One person out of the 60 million odd in this country voiced a personal opinion – not backed up by anything or anyone else – he said he thought Boris Johnston had not really wanted Brexit. I repeat – one person in over 60 million without any corroboration on any sort and yet the Biased Broadcasting Corporation made it their online national news headline for much of the day. It’s not that they attacked Boris necessarily, it’s their total arrogance that they think they could do this to anyone they don’t like, thereby politically influencing the opinions of the viewing and listening public.That’s not in their Charter !

    According to the highly reputable Dundee Courier ” Salmond’s losing it ”

    Most of the media this morning comment on the success of the UK economy post Brexit – even the Guardian ! What ‘eejit’ of a political leader would want to separate her group from such a successful organisation – only one trying desperately to keep her inferiority complexed ‘soldiers’ onside. For the sake of Scotland she knows there will be no further independence referendum but has to keep up the drip feed of pretence to stop her followers leaving to join the new hard left socialist Labour Party..

    So tell me! Was the march through Oban a few days ago by flag waving members of the SNP a march of remembrance for the day two years ago when the SNP suffered their greatest defeat, or were these the few who really believe that Sturgeon will try for a second Independence referendum. The rest of us realise that she is just trying to keep the extremists on side by innuendo – but do they ?
