Sigh, spotted this insane idea again in a piece about wind farms.
And 20 years of wind projects would give Britain a tremendous opportunity for more jobs, manufacturing and investment.
This is a cost, not a benefit, of such schemes.
We lose all of the other things that such manufacturing capacity, such investment and such labour could have been making for us if we weren\’t making windmills.
It is possible that it is still a good idea to be making windmills of course, possible that it\’s a bad idea, but when we try to make up our minds about it we need to put the costs on the right side of the balance. Jobs and investments are costs, not benefits.
