Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Jerome a Paris:
more of that "wind is unserious" mindset. Wankers.

it's the refusal to look at any interest other than the sheerly economic that is so galling. such a case of looking through the telescope from the wrong end!

such a reductionist mindset, entirely devoid of humanity...

this refusal, coupled with the convenient overlooking of externalities in coal and nuclear (plutonium or mercury, whee!), that makes some news for wind look dire.

i believe it's just foot-dragging by any other name.

great reference diary!

And their view of "economic" is really "financial given a system dominated by large for profit banks that need high rates of return to counter losses on risky investments". Adam Smith would have been horrified.
