It doesn't matter whether the wind blows, or not, or too much, our "green" – but only behind-the gills – politicians will be happy to chuck big chunks of our taxes at the wind companies, while, ignoring cheap, reliable, alternatives, such as our abundant shale gas and small, modern, nuclear plants (which harmlessly power France.)
