Skip to comments.Obama, if wind works so well why are Scots facing "heat or eat?" and paying over $7.00 for gas?

Scotland, one of Barack Obamas models for his bogus wind power scam has literally seen the wind go out of her socialist politically correct sails.
Scotland is the poster boy for the failure of wind power as a genuine source of energy. All of the high and mighty talk about wind as a viable alternative source of energy is now gone, not in the strong productive winds of the drawing board, but with the gentle breezes that are Scotlands reality.
The Scottish governments ill-advised but politically correct wind; not fossil fuel scheme has so devastated the average Scottish households economy that many have been confronted with the choice of heat or eat.
Scotlands falling for the global warming hoax is killing people. The problem is so well understood it has a name: fuel poverty.
The cost comparison between relying on wind power versus using plentiful and efficient natural gas is stunning. A study by Edinburgh University shows gas costs to by roughly 11% of what wind generated power would costs when projected over the next eight years!
Because of the unreliable nature of wind power systems they REQUIRE the construction and constant maintenance of parallel gas turbine energy generating systems.
Absent political correctness and gullibility a sane administration would reject out of hand building redundant systems as foolishness.
The average Scottish household is already spending more than 1/7th of its monthly income (not its total expenses but its TOTAL monthly income) on gas and...

just want your 'green'.
Long time ago.
