Clearly an inadequate supply of bird choppers

National Grid fires up old coal plants as icy weather risks blackout
Electricity prices hit high in scramble for scarce power supplies

Or perhaps the solar panels can be encouraged to work this evening?

  1. Cold weather is forecast to increase electricity demand in Britain to the highest level so far this winter over the teatime peak tonight, as households use more energy to keep warm.

    At the same time, still conditions mean that wind farms are forecast to be generating less than a tenth of their maximum capacity. Wind was generating only about 3 per cent of Britain’s electricity yesterday afternoon.

    Thanks, Conservatives!

  2. My sons and all of their friends under 40 are quite passionate that Globbal Waaarming exists.

    Personally, I’m a fan of Dr Judith Murray, a scientist who has studied climates all her working life and was excommunicated for not being suitably passionate.

    I tried for a while to discuss my scepticism, illustrating it with a father promising a child a super duper games console with a 70″ screen for Xmas. The console never appeared, but each Xmas the father promised it next year. How many Xmases before the child became sceptical about the existence of the super duper console?

    Perhaps the Swedes are more gullible and really do believe in an absent minded Santa?

    A view which will (hopefully) change once they are shivering in the dark…

  4. It’s a religion. Shivering in the dark is just proof for them. “I prayed to God, and I was rescued by a lifeboat, proof God exists” sorta thing.

    I wonder how true that really is.
    OK we take the piss out of it on sites like but on the MSM CGW’s almost universally accepted. The only articles or programmes you see might are debating the solutions, not the existance.
    If you spoke with people 50 or 60 years ago, how many would have admitted not believing in God? What would have happened if you made a point of saying you didn’t rather going with the flow?
    When people say it’s taken on the aspects of a religion it really has. It’s as much of schooling as morning prayers were. More possibly.

  6. It’s amazing that, especially in a coastal climate like the UK, Clogland, etc., the extremes of temperature happen when it’s… clear, with hardly any wind.
    This used to be taught in geography class in highschool. Any highschool , anywhere.

    Seems the idjits who promote the bird choppers who are All About Climate slept through those classes, given that windmills, by the very nature of the climate they want to Preserve, tend not to generate power when it’s actually needed the most.

    Then again, as pointed out above.. Religion doesn’t need math, just fervent and sincere wishful thinking delusions Opinion.

  7. Can you see supply throttling?

    《More than 30 tankers holding liquefied natural gas (LNG) are idling just off Europe’s shoreline, the Financial Times reported, as traders are holding out for higher market prices.》

  8. I thought it had already been discussed that at least some of the tankers eating offshore was due to lack of unloading and storage facility, something else to blame the politicians for, and that the tankers are basically (expensive) floating storage tanks at this point

    They weren’t asleep, they were on Skolstrejk för klimatet. The same reason they don’t understand (or are even aware of) the carbon cycle.
