We suppose this is as clear-cut a case of “F.U.M.U.”* as we’ll ever find.

(Note: All emphasis & snark is ours.—B.)

The days of permanently available electricity may be coming to an end, the head of the power network said yesterday.

Families would have to get used to only using power when it was available (Or the Kommissars deem them worthy—B.), rather than constantly, said Steve Holliday, chief executive of National Grid. Mr Holliday was challenged over how the country would “keep the lights on” when it relied more on wind turbines as supplies of gas dwindled. (Despite the planet having thousands of years worth of the stuff.—B.) Electricity provided by wind farms will increase six-fold (Providing a WHOPPING ~2-3% of the needed power.—B.) by 2020 but critics (Read: “Sane people”.—B.) complain they only generate on windy days. (NEWS ALERT!!!—B.)

Aaaaaah. The joys of Algore’s Socialist EUtopian Green Energy®!!! We’ll be on a level of Gaian Green Ecstasy paralleled only by that Home of Happy Unicorns & Fairies, North Korea, in no time, once we rid ourselves of that Eeeeevil Oiiiiil™, Eeeeeeevil Coal™, Eeeeeeeevil Natural Gas™ & Even MORE Eeeeeviler Nukular Power™!!!

Let’s hope ol’ Grandmum can keep pedaling her bicycle-powered generator to run her heater, lights, TV/radio, fridge, dialysis machine and nebulizer (or “nebuliser” in the UK) when the wind turbines ice up and/or the wind stops blowing for a few days.

Any bets on how many back-up generators & fuel storage tanks Jolly Prince Chuckles and the rest of the royals and Limousine Leninist™ shitheels have stashed away on all of their massive estates? Bueller?

F.E.T.E.

My pioneer ancestors have got to be spinning in their graves right about now. Maybe they’d better keep it up…it’ll help generate electricity.

I expect our resident apologist along any moment now to tell us about how this is SUCH a good idea, and that Bonzo is SOOO forward-thinking in his ideas.

We could always supplement our fuel sources by using liberals as biomass.

Gee, that explains why I have heard several commercials for generators today. Tagline “Ensure you have continuous power during outages and brown outs”.

I was going to make a smartass comment about how the treehuggers want us all to live like we were on Gilligan’s Island.

Then I found this article:

Makes me glad I own three generators…of course consuming the evil stashed gasoline will not sit well with the Greenies….I’ve said it time and tme again to deaf ears, lefties don’t give a damn about people, only causes. We’;re just going to have to learn the hard way………say punishing us for existing. Now why don’t these self-haters just suicide out… Read more »

Well Well Well. What a bunch of crap. I live at the top of a mountain in a redwood forest. Here the dumbasses have hooked all the power, cable, phone, lines from the street to redwood trees on the way to your house. Brilliant. So when the wind blows a 300 foot redwood tree, the wires move and trips the… Read more »

A little Star Chamber action might not be a bad idea right now. It’s no longer ambiguous that the green loons are going full-on Soviet.

Unfortunately, this shit started moving last year. There was an aluminium smelter in Anglesey that was forced to close down, not because it wasn’t a viable business, but because the power company couldn’t supply it with enough power. I’ve just posted over on an open thread at biased BBC about this (the BBC website does have a bit of audio… Read more »

Virago mentioned…. it seems that the more affluent neighborhoods didn’t share in the darkness, like the rest of us. After Hurricane Ike, our power was back on within 36 hours (when other parts of the area took weeks), which surprised the HELL out of me. Wife and I figured it was because we live between the police station and the… Read more »

Response to LC TerribleTroy @ 7: Which is one of the EXACT reasons they don’t want us to have continuous power. I’ll probably froth about this one tonight.
Response to LC HJ Caveman82952 @ 10: Indeed. If they’re so hellbent on the human race in reductio, show us the way! Say hallelujah!

Response to LC Gunsniper @:

Kyoto was advocating that the world reduces their CO2 emissions by 20 percent. I know the solution, and we can even get it better – line up every lefty, greeny or union thug for a run into the oven, and not only we eliminate every leftist, we also fulfill the Kyoto ‘protocol’ instantly.

“Senator Obama campaigned hard in New Hampshire but he apparently didn’t like what he saw,” Romney says in prepared remarks. “He certainly didn’t learn from it. Instead of lowering taxes, he raised them. He wrapped businesses in red tape, he grew government, he borrowed trillions of dollars, and he made it clear that he doesn’t like business people very much.… Read more »

The sheer arrogance of iron-clad stupidity is impossible to avoid in this case. We have the technology; it is in current use. Nuclear reactors provide up to 77% of Fwance’s energy – and they have enough surplus capacity to export. Why exactly should the UK be reduced to feudal wind powered technology? Well, Al Gore said so. Damnit – when… Read more »
