I felt this was a nice and pithy response from BoredwithLabour

Germany is emitting more CO2 than before wind turbines because the turbines that they built are inefficient? Are you suggesting that if they hadn't built turbines, they would be emitting less CO2 right now? Are you really suggesting that the coal plants are less effiicient now because of the wind turbines? Then stop using the damn things.

There's no such thing as renewable energy? You really need to explain this point in more detail. Do you mean practically? Cost-effectively? Literally?

There are others. Lovelock sounds like he's out of his mind on this one. It's really some sort of Hardy-esque pastoral fantasy writ large, I had to check he wasn't a spokesman for Prince Charles.
