Temperatures are forecast to drop to – 5 centigrade today, but wind turbines are producing essentially no power. In Wales they are producing nothing as usual. Many people have reverted to coal and wood burners to keep warm. Houses are thrown up by developers and are badly built and badly insulated. What genius thought out this energy policy?”
Scientists now say ‘Celsius’ in place of ‘centigrade’ Ron. This is because it was belatedly thought to be unfair that the outlandish scale of Fahrenheit should have an eponymous unit while the sensible scale of Celsius did not. As for energy policy, what sort of ‘genius’ would talk of basing it on perpetual-motion machines?
