  1. A rather cogent comment underneath shows Booker’s figures are wrong. Not so wrong as to undermine the argument, but wrong enough to undermine Booker’s credibility as a journalist.

  2. Actually, the fact that he inflated the wind subsidy by a factor of two does undermine the argument; assuming you view wind as a hedge against rising gas prices and political instability in supplying countries, the fact that it’s half as expensive as Booker claims is really quite important.
