You live near a pub, it gets a bit noisy on Fri Sat evenings. It has always been the case Complaining about the noise is like living in the countryside and complaining about the sound of tractors or the smell of manure.

To me it is not complex at all, but very simple. It is all very well saying that one eighth of power is wind generated, BUT that is not a CONSTANT eighth. Where does the electricity come from when there is no wind or sun?  As I write, the rest of our ... [ more ]

Parts of Spain (e.g. El Hierro in the Canaries) have certainly managed it. It's not actually too hard, it's just a matter of doing it. It's all about storage and we've managed to do that in (for example) Scotland. We also got the tidal power coming ... [ more ]

Cars not using lights

in Playford
I could not believe the amount of cars driving in thick fog this morning without any lights whatsoever.  Do these idiots realise it is dangerous not to put car lights on in this sort of weather?  Shame there weren't any police about to pull them up.
