- 35. 100 Tories revolt over wind farms - Telegraph
David Cameron has been hit by a major protest by Conservative MPs over the Government’s backing for wind farms, The Sunday Telegraph can disclose.A total of 101 Tory MPs have written to the Prime Minister demanding that the £400 million-a-year subsidies paid to the “inefficient” onshore wind turbine industry are “dramatically cut”.The backbenchers, joined by some MPs from other parties, have also called on Mr Cameron to tighten up planning laws so local people have a better chance of stopping new farms being developed and protecting the countryside.The demands will be a headache for Ed Davey, the Liberal Democrat Energy Secretary, who joined the Cabinet on Friday when Chris Huhne resigned after being charged with perverting the course of justice.

They have long been championed as a way to combat global warming by creating clean energy.But wind farms can actually alter the climate according to a new study by a group of American scientists.The team from the University of Illinois found that daytime temperatures around wind farms can fall by as much as 4C, while at night temperatures can increase.

- 37. Wave power is a really, really stupid idea. That’s why it’s getting so much taxpayer subsidy
Civil servants think they can transform our clean energy prospects. The market doesn’t agree. But you’re paying for their hunch anyway.The surface of the sea is a hostile and unforgiving place. Although it covers 71 per cent of the planet, nothing much bigger than a speck lives there. Obviously, lots of slimy and scaly things swim around beneath the surface — but on the very top, pretty much zilch. Mother Nature has found niches for life in the desert, the Arctic and deep underground but, after 4.5 billion years of trying, she is passing on the surface of the sea, thanks all the same.

A SENIOR Ukip MEP has attacked Nick Clegg's plans to make Britain "the cutting-edge green economy in the world".Ministers today launched radical plans for the offshore wind power industry as they formally opened Centrica Energy's £1 billion wind farm in Lincolnshire.It was announced £66 million will be invested to improve the supply chain for offshore wind developments, boost innovation and bring new products to market.But Euro MP Roger Helmer has blasted the controversial strategy, which is being set out by the Deputy Prime Minister and Energy Secretary Ed Davey, branding it "useless"."Not only is Nick Clegg mad, he is also about 18 months out of date – no one is interested in wind power anymore," Mr Helmer said.

- 40. Wind farms: Ceausescu would have loved 'em – Telegraph Blogs
Wind farms are like one of those frustratingly unripened boils: you know that you shouldn't keep squeezing but they're so noxious and irritating and hideous that you just can't resist. If you've got the same problem, then I heartily recommend you read this brilliant essay on the subject by Russell Taylor.I love his dismissal of people who claim to find wind turbines beautiful: "….a sentiment I find as credible as a Soviet peasant admiring the Tiger tank that had just squashed his grandmother."But what really grabbed me was his analysis at the end of wind turbines' totemic significance to the left. I've touched on this before myself. It's why I christened them "eco-crucifixes", because they're not really about viable energy or even saving the planet but rather, like…

- 41. Wind turbines: a disaster for birds | Roger Helmer MEP
I’m receiving a lot of letters regarding the shooting of songbirds in Malta for sport. While I’m not opposed in principle to the shooting of birds for sport or for the pot, the annual carnage in Malta seems disproportionate and a possible threat to the species involved. I have accordingly raised the matter several times with the Commission, without any satisfactory answer. This is a good illustration of the ineffectiveness of European Institutions in delivering solutions to problems that concern citizens.

- 42. The extraordinary safety of nuclear power | Roger Helmer MEP
I want to say a bit more about last Friday’s nuclear debate at Exeter University. I was struck by the misconceptions that were expressed. The local Green Party man argued that Somali pirates were motivated to hi-jack ships and kidnap tourists as a protest against the social injustice caused by the nuclear industry (honest, I’m not making this up). One speaker from the floor said she understood the safety statistics, but couldn’t we understand public concern over nuclear power when we remembered Chernobyl and Bhopal? I had to point out that Bhopal was a chemical industry accident, and had nothing whatever to do with nuclear power. Indeed she’d neatly illustrated my point that accidents and disasters occur from time to time in all major industries. Within the electricity generation industry we need to look at the statistics to see which technologies are safer.In my speech, I pointed out that many prominent environmentalists were now calling for nuclear energy. There’s “Environmentalists for nuclear power”. There’s James Lovelock of the Gaia hypothesis, and granddaddy of the environmental movement. And George Monbiot, a lifetime opponent of nuclear who has just had a Damascene conversion to the cause.But although I myself have been a long-time supporter of nuclear power, I must confess that I was bowled over by the statistics that I mugged up on before the debate. Nuclear is not merely as safe as coal or gas or hydro. It’s not just a bit safer. It’s hugely safer, by several orders of magnitude. That’s hundreds or thousands of times safer.

- 43. Wind farms: even worse than we thought - Telegraph Blogs
The Global Warming Policy Foundation has produced yet another devastating report: this time on the economics of wind farms. Turns out they're even worse than we thought.Not only do the Bat Chomping Eco-Crucifixes (TM) ruin views, kill birds, cause bats to implode, destroy the British film industry, frighten horses, enrich rent-seeking toffs like David Cameron's father-in-law Sir Reginald Sheffield Bt, drive up electricity bills, kill jobs, create fuel poverty, cause old people to die of hypothermia, wipe out property values, drive people mad with strobing and noise pollution and enable smug liberal idiots to spout rubbish like "Oh, I don't mind them. Actually I think they're rather beautiful", but also by 2020 they're set to drive up consumer bills in the UK alone by £120 billion.

- 44. Why do I call them bat-chomping, bird-slicing eco crucifixes….? – Telegraph Blogs
I wonder what it will take before the world truly wakes up to the horror, the corruption, the expense, the pointlessness, the total wrongness-in-every-way of the wind industry. My guess – and it will happen – is the decapitation, by a rogue turbine blade, of an innocent passer-by.Till then, though, we have photographs like this to send the mind boggling as to why anyone, anywhere can still be so purblind as to go on championing these bat-chomping, bird-slicing eco crucifixes. What's particularly interesting about this one is that it was taken in the constituency of one of wind power's most fervent and tireless advocates, Caroline Lucas MP.Here's a picture of the Brighton Bird Chomper

- 45. 'The lights will go out over Britain': Shares in energy firms drop 5% amid warnings of blackouts from Miliband's plan to freeze bills
In the most Left-wing speech by a party chief in decades, Ed Miliband said he would fix power bills until 2017 if he won the next election.Angela Knight, of the Energy UK trade association, warned Mr Miliband's plan would risk jobs and threaten the energy supply.'Freezing the bill, may be superficially attractive, but it will also freeze the money to build and renew power stations, freeze the jobs and livelihoods of the 600,000 plus people dependent on the energy industry and make the prospect of energy shortages a reality, pushing up the prices for everyone,' she added.Liberal Democrat energy secretary Ed Davey said: ‘When they tried to fix prices in California it resulted in an electricity crisis and widespread blackouts. We can’t risk the lights going out here too.

- 46. We could soon be paying billions for this wind back-up - Telegraph
The National Grid's latest plan is taking off into the weirdest scheme yet, thanks to our politicians obsession with wind turbines.Occasionally, one comes across a story so mind-blowingly unexpected and out-of-left-field that it seems hard for readers to take on board that it is true. Such is the story I first reported here last month, under the heading, “Our lights will stay on, but it’ll cost us a fortune”, about the scheme being devised by the National Grid to solve what has long been the most intractable problem created by the Government’s plan to see the best part of £110 billion spent in seven years on building tens of thousands more wind turbines – namely, how to keep our national grid “balanced” when it has to cope with all those unpredictably wild fluctuations in the speed of the wind.The answer National Grid has come up with, only made possible by the latest computer technology and “cloud software”, is to hook up thousands of diesel generators, remotely controlled by the grid, to provide almost instantly available back-up for when the wind drops.

- 47. Thorium
Thorium is much more abundant in nature than uranium. Thorium can be used as a nuclear fuel through breeding to uranium-233 (U-233). When this thorium fuel cycle is used, much less plutonium and other transuranic elements are produced, compared with uranium fuel cycles. Several thorium-fuelled reactor concepts are under consideration.
