It is no wonder Zero Carbon Britain says that the UK could generate all it's power from the wind and have some left over to sell to the continent. I'm walking the coast path and the wind has been still for barely a few hours over the course of several weeks. Today I was knocked down repeatedly by 50 mph gusts funnelling over the cliff edge from a NW gale. The only question is, where are all the windturbines? With this magnificient resource why is the government so keen on developing more coal and nuclear power plants? It makes no sense.
I'll be on the trail for several more days and will only be posting on an irregular basis. Thanks for being patient and for stopping by.
What have you done today to lower your impact?
We are washing away the foundations of our existence on every front. It is high time we move from crashing about on the planet like a bull in china shop and find a way to go forward with intent. We must find systems of living based on sustainability. The systems and tools exist, it is up to each of us to adopt them.
