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?
