It's hard to to be stuck on stupid when other places are being
rational.


Bret Cahill

The UK isn't being rational. A 30 year target is pretty
meaningless. How are they going to achieve it?

Also, the current trend is to promote impractical solutions such as
wind. Wind is too variable, we need a reliable power source for
winter heating.


as of 8am, nuclear is stuck on 4.3gw, the day seems calm yet wind is
giving 2.9 gw, solar is giving an estimated 1.2gw, so pouring
billions into nuclear seems rather silly when wind, solar and tide
can give more for less without the residual danger and cost.

If you look at https://www.gridwatch.templar.co.uk/ you will see
very little solar in winter and periods with very little power from
wind.

I'd like the renewables all in 1 box, not chuck wind in with
nuke/coal/gas.

Given that current electrical generation doesn't include transport or
heating you need to about double or triple current electricity
generation and have it available when people want it. Even the
current small contribution from variable sources such as wind and
solar causes considerable problems for the distribution grid.

Tidal is very expensive.


but very cheap compared to nuclear, and always available.


Good lard, IAWTP. Go on Mr C get with the program(me) and use an
environmentally friendly means of transport.


I do, I walk when the journey is feasible, but I have to keep dodging
all these bicycles on the footway.
