Windy logic


The Greenpeace commissioned study into nuclear safety (NCE last week) was carried out by consulting engineer John Large - the same John Large who installed a wind turbine that only generated 27p of electricity over three weeks (NCE 15 February).

If we forego electricity generation from nuclear power what are the realistic options for future power supply for this country?

I hope Large will now tell us that wind turbines are not the way forward and all future plans for them should be scrapped.
