The dirty secret of Britain’s power madness: Polluting diesel generators built in secret by foreign companies to kick in when there’s no wind for turbines – and other insane but true eco-scandals
- Moving to wind power is expected to cost £1 billion a year by 2015
- Official figures on the size of the green economy are extremely misleading
- They exaggerate the worth of the sector by up to 700 per cent
In Germany, where the renewables sector is significantly more developed (it has 31GW of wind energy – compared to the UK’s 8GW), the green experiment has been little short of disastrous.
