I admit I was more than a bit concerned by the recent announcement of building a lot more offshore wind farms. Even though there's a fair bit of wind in the UK it's simply not up to the task, maintenance is also a real bastard.
There is only one reliable, rational and effective "renewable" electricity generating source and that's hydro. However that needs a whole bunch of the rainy, hilly and suitably valley shaped bits of the UK to have dams built, the Jocks aren't keen which is a shame as it would give them a serious and viable industry like the Norwegians have done.
Yep, Boris soon changed his tune when his bird got her nose in the trough, getting paid by an environmental lobby group.
From the Oceana Inc. wiki page:
“Oceana is dedicated to combating the numerous threats to the world's oceans that climate change imposes. Its main focus has been the acidification of the ocean, which threatens marine life, especially shellfish and coral that are necessary to many marine ecosystems, and, consequently, sources of seafood. They also focus on promoting offshore wind farms and combating the use of offshore drilling and seismic airgun blasting.”
