Angus Dei has the solution:
Forget the sixty metre “Wind Farm” appendages, for which you need a pilot’s license to build, and only work if there is a breeze, forget importing gas to produce electricity forget all this “new fangled” technology; I have the answer.
Water Wheels: that relaxing, quiet, green method of sparking life up: imagine rows of water wheels along river banks connected to the generators from those big white whirly things that blot the landscape.
Imagine the peace and calm of water power, the gentle sound of rippling water over the blades, virtually noiseless, nature’s own powerhouse.
Imagine flicking the switch on the TV or the computer knowing that you are not harming the environment, or polluting the atmosphere, killing off the fauna or dumping “nasties” into our waterways.
It isn’t as if we don’t have enough water in the UK, in Britain alone there are oodles of wet water ways, hundreds of miles of river banks just waiting to be used, no more massive “Power Stations”, no more glow in the dark Nuclear Reactors, no more threats from the east to cut off our gas.
Water, the oldest power in the world, and the newest-or is that “they” don’t want us to use this green source so that the price of electricity can be kept at a price “they” think we should pay?
Water, water everywhere and not a drop of watts.
